Google Hands Over Control of Google Web Toolkit to Steering Committee
June 29, 2012—With the GWT steering committee, Google goes from being a gatekeeper to a peer among equals, with the committee controlling the road map of GWT. “It will no longer be Google as a dictator,” said Ray Cromwell, Google tech lead for GWT. He will serve as committee chairperson for the time being. Other companies represented on the committee include Vaadin, Sencha, and Red Hat, and other members include GWT advocates Thomas Broyer, Christian Goudreau, and Daniel Kurka.
