Apache Software Foundation members meeting
Ken has already provided the details on this week's ASF members meeting. Most people don't really understand how the ASF works -- organizationally it's unlike most of the other open source projects out there. Stefano's How the ASF works is a good overview for the interested.

Unexpectedly, the highlight of the meeting for me was the roll call at the beginning of Wednesday's meeting. In the channel for the meeting, people are supposed to use an IRC nick that ASF members will recognize. To take roll, everyone then just types their name and e-mail address, which will show up in the channel prefixed with their IRC nick. When the roll is actually called, there is just a flood of nick, name, email lines scrolling up off the window. Now, this isn't the first time that I've experienced this, but on Wednesday I felt a sense of amazement as people all over the world (some had gotten up early just for this) answered the roll call. It wasn't merely for the distribution of the people, but for what they've accomplished. The Apache web server, Tomcat, Xerces, Log4J, Lucene, mod_perl, Cocoon, and more. I know that it was one of the great honors of my life when I was elected to membership, so I can imagine how the new members must be feeling today. Congratulations to them especially, and also to the new board!

Eclipse 3.0M9 is out
The New and Noteworthy stuff starts here. The best thing I see here is code folding, but there's probably something for everyone.
