GWT takes the open road!

We at Red Hat are very pleased to announce our involvement in the new open source initiative for the Google Web Toolkit. Today at Google I/O, the new GWT steering community was announced and initially consists of the following people:

Ray Cromwell (Google)
Darrel Meyer (Sencha)
Mike Brock (Red Hat)
Christian Goudreau (Arcbees)
Joonas Lehtinen (Vaadin)
Thomas Broyer
Stephan Haberman
Daniel Kurka (mgwt)

I am very excited to represent Red Hat's value, commitment to community and open source to help drive progress and innovation with GWT and beyond.

Errai represents a major bet on the future of GWT for Red Hat, and this new initiative will allow us to double-down, by allowing us to contribute directly to the core of GWT, where the broader community can benefit from our collective investment.

My thanks to Ray Cromwell, Google and the rest of the initial steering members for helping to bring this to fruition.

Our steering mailing list is now open to the public, and I know I can't wait to get the discussion rolling. The best is yet to come for GWT!
