Come on Eclipse, let’s grow a Mo

Come on Eclipse, let’s grow a Mo

As most of you know October is coming to an end. This means that M3 is due out soon, ESE is over, and the very early EclipseCon registration deadline is approaching.  It also means that Movember is starting.  Movember is a month dedicated to changing the face of men’s health, and it’s all about the Mo (the Mustache).  This year I thought we could try and get an Eclipse team together to help with this worthy cause.

So, if you’re part of the Eclipse Community — an Eclipse Committer, a Eclipse Contributor, a active user — you are encouraged to join the Eclipse Mommitters (Eclipse Committers with a Mo), help raise awareness of Prostate Cancer, and grow a killer mustache.

1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.  Prostate cancer is the most common cancer to afflict Canadian men with 25,500 diagnosed and 4,400 dying from the disease each year.

This is not just for the gentlemen either.  Ladies, you are welcome to join as Mo Sista, a woman who loves a Mo. You can join the Eclipse team at the following URL: http://ca.movember.com/register/44681 .  Hey, maybe we can all keep our Mo’s until EclipseCon and get a group picture ;-). (I’m just kidding).

    Y’know, that icon looks pretty great. You should get that inserted into all of the weekly integrations and upcoming milestone builds in celebration. Barbershop Eclipse, yo!

    Oh…I like the icon idea. Ian open a bug against platform releng and we can make this happen…
