It’s worth mentioning a few things that the PMC looks at for committership (getting write
access to the repos):
- participation on ML
- submitting pull requests
- voting on releases
- helping users on ML or slack or IRC
- helping with testing.

For instance we have lots of PRs in the pipe, anyone with a cloudstack installation can help
testing those PRs (pull them, build, report test results) etc…

For the website, same thing anyone can submit a pull request….

For release votes, anyone can vote (even none committers)

Bottom line, while not being a committer prevents you from writing to the repos directly it
should not be seen as an impediment.

Say someone starts reviewing all the pending PRs, providing good feedback, running tests etc….that
would be a good case for committership.
