Subject Re: Sanselan: commit access?
Date Thu, 24 Feb 2011 20:52:37 GMT
Both the committer and PMC addition process happens on the private PMC
list so we can be candid, yet polite (knowing full well that people
can read the archives later on :) ).

The kick off for a vote is organic; either an existing member flags
that it should happen, or the individual in question hits a barrier
that makes it hard for them to increase their level of contribution
and they politely raise it in an email (like Damjan has done).

At that our extremely well oiled process kicks into gear.... if anyone
should need the gear workings for a Model T Ford, let us know :)

If anyone, like Damjan, wants to be a committer and can justify why
[i.e. the contributions that explain why you and not any other
contributor to the mailing list/JIRA], please feel free to step up and
do as Damjan did.
