Eclipse contributions – What difference can a single developer make?

I frequently hear that a single developer cannot make a difference for the Eclipse project. I think that is not true. The Eclipse project page show that in a lot of projects a handful of developers make most of the work.

See for example JDT project page and you see that Stephan Herrmann makes 24 % of the changes in JDT.

Kudos to Stephan for this. I hope others see this as opportunity to get involved into Eclipse development and to make a difference. See Eclipse platform development guide for starting points.

If you live close to Hamburg, please join our Eclipse Hackathon Friday this week.
