Subject Re: Jira Issues
Date Mon, 03 Jun 2013 23:14:27 GMT
Speaking with my Apache Accumulo hat on:

Contributors will typically attach the patch to the corresponding Jira 
issue or use review board [1]

The patch, ignoring very trivial changes, will typically hang around for 
a while (probably due to the time until a committer has a moment to look 
at it -- I like to think this gives everyone a chance to look at the 
changes to give feedback despite us being a CTR [2] project). A 
committer who is comfortable with the changes will typically be the 
"champion" behind it to ensure it's up to snuff (matches code-style, no 
compiler warnings, works as intended, has tests, etc), apply it, and 
merge it to any other branches as necessary.

The only time a patch has come up for review/vote for us (as far as I 
remember) is when the patch creates a controversial feature or there is 
strong disagreement on the implementation of the changes.

Hope that helps!

It's worthwhile, IMO.
