Subject Re: Becoming a committer?
Date Fri, 18 Nov 2016 19:39:57 GMT
One thing I'd like to add to it is that different contributors 
contribute differently. Some people contribute very often, some less 

I think during this latest year we have not had that many new 
contributors coming in with most of the new contributors starting 
helping during the last few months. A 1 year gap is not reflecting the 
real picture of how the CXF contributions are done.

We have a new committer being in the process of joining the team right 
now whose contributions were spread over a fairly long period of time, 
we've had a number of new contributors coming in recently, and we do 
hope the CXF team will keep growing.

I believe CXF PMC has always been looking for an opportunity to grow the 
team, both the PMC and committers teams, this is how I see as an 
individual PMC team member.
