The Unconference was held this year at the Hotel Pullman, which was a great improvement over previous years, and the feedback on the event was extremely positive.
It was decided based on feedback to pause EclipseCon France in , with the plan of returning in The Eclipse Foundation's fiscal year end is December Our headquarters are located in Ottawa, Canada. Membership renewals remained strong, and working group revenue and website advertising were both steady compared to The organization continues to be on a solid financial footing, and the migration of Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation, initiatives in the automotive space, and the continued evolution of IoT and related initiatives, collectively represent opportunities for new membership growth.
The financial impact of strategic membership is always significant to the Foundation. We were pleased to have Fujitsu, Payara Services, and Tomitribe all join as strategic members in , largely due to their participation in the new Jakarta EE working group. Both Payara and Tomitribe will step back from Strategic membership in , as the requirement for Strategic members of Jakarta to be Strategic members of the Foundation were relaxed by the Jakarta EE Steering Committee in Of note, the Strategic members of the Jakarta EE working group each committed to a minimum of three 3 years of funding to the working group.
This is a first for working groups at Eclipse, and enables both the working group, and the Foundation in support of it, to make a significant investment in the working group's objectives. During the time period spanning April 1, to March 31, , the Eclipse Foundation received 3, requests for intellectual property review and completed 3, reviews. This represents continuing growth in the demands made on the Eclipse IP Team.
Strategic partnerships and certifications
There's not enough data to definitively state that we will continue on the somewhat linear trend up that we've experienced over the past few years, but there's no denying that engagement with the Eclipse Intellectual Property Due Diligence Process and the IP Team has been steadily increasing.
We added a new member to the team, Shawn Kilpatrick, in mid to help address the increase in demand, but this increase in staffing capacity has been coupled by an increase in the diversity of the tasks performed by the IP Team. No matter how you slice it, the Eclipse Intellectual Property Team continues to work at a pace that is challenging to sustain.
With this in mind, we have started a project to review and revise the Eclipse IP Policy and associated practices that we hope to roll out by the end of We believe that we can lower the burden on both the committers and the Eclipse IP Team while maintaining the industry-leading high quality that the community has come to expect from Eclipse projects. By way of background, our license certification due diligence process validates that the license of third party content is on our white list of approved licenses and generally conforms to the licensing scheme employed by the respective project.
Project teams appear to be enthusiastically taking advantage of this new type of due diligence. The rate at which requests for the more traditional types of IP reviews arrive appears to have dropped somewhat over the last few reporting periods, but still remains very strong while the adoption of license certification is on an upward trend. A great diversity of project types and technology are leveraging this form of third party content due diligence.
In past years, license certification was more likely leveraged by projects nested under particular top-level projects, but that no longer appears to be the case. In June , the Eclipse community shipped Eclipse Photon, its thirteenth annual simultaneous release. Including previous releases of the Eclipse Platform, this was the fifteenth release that was shipped on time, to the day.

A total of 85 projects participated in the Photon simultaneous release. The release comprises 73 million lines of code produced by committers from 41 member companies, with contributions from non-committer contributors. Following the June release, the Eclipse Planning Council switched to a quarterly release cadence. With this change in cadence, we've adapted our usual metrics chart to show a quarterly view.
This predictable release schedule has been a key part of the Eclipse Community's success over the years, and is an important part of the success of the Eclipse ecosystem. The number of proposals for new Eclipse Projects that we receive year-after-year is on an upward trend. The spike in includes a large number of projects that are part of the Jakarta EE effort.
Since , the Foundation increased its collaboration with academics, researchers, and industries by participating in several European funded research projects. The Foundation's main objective in these projects is to help the consortium engaged in each project build an open source platform and community around their respective EU research project.
As of March , Eclipse Foundation Europe is a research partner in six large European research projects. Eclipse Foundation Europe participated in three additional large European research projects in The EMO is committed to providing a robust and dependable server and software infrastructure, including professional support staff to assist projects and working groups in achieving their goals effectively and efficiently, as well as steadily improving services to the Eclipse committers and the projects they work on.
Here is a sampling of some infrastructure metrics, plus some improvements we've put into place over the past year. With modern multi-gigabit load balancers based on NGINX, we're now capable of dealing with sudden, massive 10x and more traffic spikes that plagued us in Our obsolete Cisco firewalls are next on the upgrade list. There were important roadblocks and regressions that prevented us from mass migration to CJE, and as the regressions were not being resolved to meet our requirements, we've developed an in-house mechanism for Jenkins Instances running on OpenShift, named Jiro.
We've addressed many issues with our GitHub integration, which had been plagued with problems for years and was generally unreliable. Most of the underlying code was re-written to take advantage of modern frameworks and GitHub apps, and now provides a robust and reliable experience for our committers and contributors. The effort has helped spawn plans for rethinking the communication mechanisms employed by the Eclipse Infra software stack, towards a modern microservices architecture.
Our goals are to reduce complexity, facilitate interacting with third-party software and sites, and enabling more robust and de-coupled communications mechanisms. Eclipse's account database now sits at , accounts, with an average growth rate of over 2, new accounts each month. Except where noted this report will cover the period April 1, to March 31, In short, our vision for the Eclipse community is: To be the leading community for individuals and organizations to collaborate on commercially-friendly open source.
Strategy The following are the strategic goals of the Eclipse Foundation for , as established by the Board of Directors. Be a leading open source community for runtimes and tools. Although the Eclipse Foundation has been shipping runtimes for its entire history, with projects such as Eclipse Hono, Eclipse Vert. It is our intent to increase our portfolio of runtimes and infrastructure projects.
The Eclipse Foundation is a leader in defining development platforms that are freely licensed and open source, and that provide support for the full breadth of the application lifecycle. However, under the leadership of the Eclipse Cloud Development top-level project, the Eclipse Che, Eclipse Dirigible, Eclipse Orion, and just recently Eclipse Theia projects are working on new tooling platforms for cloud-based and web development.
Attract and foster projects and communities in emerging technologies. This has been one of the continuous objectives of the Foundation for a number of years. The Eclipse Foundation staff and leading members of our community seek to attract and cultivate projects and members in emerging technology domains. In , we are expecting to see a number of new working groups established to support many of these new projects to better enable collaboration among key stakeholders in these technology domains.

Cultivate the growth of our projects, communities, and ecosystems. Each time Eclipse technology is used in the development of a product, service, or application, the Eclipse community is strengthened. Our goal in is to continue to focus our attention on the success of our working groups and on new Eclipse projects that focus on particular industry segments such as cloud native Java, IoT, edge, distributed ledger, web development, mobile, automotive, and science, and to continue to support and assist our broad set of Eclipse projects in the growth and vibrancy of their communities.
Create value for all its membership classes. The Eclipse Foundation serves many members whose primary interest is leveraging Eclipse technologies in proprietary offerings such as products and services.

The Eclipse Foundation continues to focus its energies to ensure that commercial opportunity exists within the Eclipse ecosystem. Committers are also members of the Eclipse Foundation and are in many ways its backbone. Over the past year, improvements to the common build infrastructure CBI have been undertaken to provide a more robust and extensible build infrastructure to the projects, and to the benefit of our members. Improvements and enhancements have also been made to our development and intellectual management processes; in particular, the Foundation's Architecture Council completed in a major overhaul of the Eclipse Development Process, which is the cornerstone process used by all our projects.
Increase our revenue. Aligned with the four strategic goals listed above is an explicit goal to increase our revenue, particularly from membership and working groups. There is also a renewed effort to engage more enterprise organizations as members. Related to membership, the Foundation introduced in late Member Funded Initiatives as a means for members, either directly or in collaboration with other members, to engage with the Foundation to fulfill specific objectives of importance to the member s.
It is expected that these MFIs will continue to grow as a source of funding in alignment with the Foundation's stated objectives. Some Key Decisions Over the past year, the Board has made a number of strategic decisions that will impact how Eclipse evolves in the future. Introduce Specification Projects. Specification projects are new way to support industry collaboration at the Eclipse Foundation.

To support the work of the Jakarta EE Working Group the Foundation introduced a new process to support the creation and maintenance of open specifications. The new specification process adopts a code-first development approach that enables experimentation in code prior to a specification being completed, and for the specifications to follow based on the experiences gained through that experimentation.
The new specification process also addresses intellectual property flows to ensure that contributions, particularly patent rights associated with those contributions, are properly captured by the process and those rights are granted to compatible implementations. There are already additional working groups getting underway, such as Sparkplug, that will also make use of our specification process. The EPL was refreshed in However, there are often good reasons for the Eclipse community to host projects using permissive licenses, and the Board and community have become increasingly comfortable with this over the years.
As such, in May the Board delegated to the Executive Director the ability to approve projects using either the Apache License v2. Overhaul our Committer and Contributor Agreements: The Eclipse Foundation documents the originator of all contributions to its projects. Contributors are required to complete the Eclipse Contributor Agreement, which basically states that contributors understand that their contributions are being made under the respective project's license.
Committers have to enter into a similar type of agreement, either with an individual agreement, or covered by an agreement with their employer if their employer is a member of the Eclipse Foundation and enters into a separate agreement enabling this coverage. All of the documents related to these contributions were updated in the fall of in order to both more clearly identify their GDPR compliance, and to add language that explicitly captures the intellectual property flows for contributions to specification projects.
Working Groups The recruitment of new projects and members has been greatly assisted by the strategy of creating Eclipse working groups.
