| Documentation is a vital part of any open source project but it's often 
| overlooked because it's not very glamorous. It's difficult to find the time 
| to keep up with a project's constant changes and find people to come up with 
| skillfully-written material. While bigger projects like OpenOffice and 
| Eclipse can afford to hire documentation specialists, in most cases it's a 
| job that's left to the FOSS community at large.

| out ‘hot topics’ but I think there are going to be 3-4 areas of particular
| interest: 1) Eclipse runtime technology based on Equinox and OSGi is very
| popular and generates lots of interest. 2) Eclipse modeling technology and
| specifically the area of domain specific languages, 3) e4, our next
| generation of Eclipse, will get lots of attention, and finally 4) mobile
| application development.
