 ### Reviewing contributor changes
 
+It is always the responsibility of committers to determine that a patch is
+intended and able to be contributed.  From the
+[new committer's guide](http://www.apache.org/dev/new-committers-guide.html#cla):
+"Please take care to ensure that patches are original works which have been
+clearly contributed to the ASF in public. In the case of any doubt (or when a
+contribution with a more complex history is presented) please consult your
+project PMC before committing it."
+
+Extra diligence may be necessary when code is contributed via a pull request.
+Committers should verify that the contributor intended to submit the code as a 
+Contribution under the [Apache License](http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.txt).

+list of commits sent to the Accumulo dev list in the pull request.
