Member perspective on Google'ing for Eclipse Stuff

It's times like this I realize how confusing the English language is. I'm glad it's my mother tounge, but even then I confused get easily it with. I've had some pings recently asking for help finding the process for proposing new projects to Eclipse. In the same vein, how to become a new committer to Eclipse projects. If you do some rampant google'ing with the obvious keywords, you're more likely to find technical information given the overloaded meaning of words like "project" and "process" in software. All this information is within a couple clicks from the main eclipse.org website, but again, English is somewhat of an art...

So here are some key links to know about if you want to propose a new project to eclipse. This link describes the Eclipse development processes. Look in the middle at the "Project Lifecycle" section for the step-by-step instructions on how to propose an Eclipse Project. This link describes the process for becoming a new committer to an Eclipse Project.
