Subject [Cordova Wiki] Update of "BecomingACommitter" by MarcelKinard
Date Mon, 07 Oct 2013 18:13:15 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Cordova Wiki" for change notification.

The "BecomingACommitter" page has been changed by MarcelKinard:

added explanation of contributor vs committer

+ = Contributor vs Committer =
+ Being a contributor is where new members start. A committer makes contributions to Cordova,
but those contributions must be reviewed and applied to the repositories by someone who has
write access directly to the repositories - the committers. Contributors have read access
and can submit requests for code changes, but those requests are handled by committers. The
project needs contributors, and every committer started as a contributor. You do not need
to be a committer to make valuable and important contributions to the project - contributors
can do that. A request for a code change is called a "pull request", as it is a request for
a committer to pull in the contributor's changes.
+ After a contributor has established a track record of quality changes and understanding,
they can request to be a committer. A committer has write access directly to the repositories,
so their changes hit the stream immediately. Committers also process pull requests from contributors.
They also review and address unresolved Jira items. Steady growth of committers is considered
an indicator of good health in a project. If you are going to be in the community for the
long term and submit ongoing code changes, you should consider being a committer.
