If you're contributing, you're changing the code anyway? :)

That is a silly thought :)

Apache is an volunteer driven organization. We're individuals here.
Everybody is welcome to contribute, take part in discussions, vote and
be part of the community. I do not know why you are so focussed on
'committership' (It is but a title that carries responsibilities, the
way I see it), but anyway, take a look at Todd's take on this topic
that came up once before: http://search-hadoop.com/m/xYFr8picfy1

A contribution is a contribution, be it from a committer or non. Take
a look at the issues we currently have at
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP (Common),
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS (HDFS), and
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAPREDUCE (MapReduce). We'd love
your contributions, be it new features, fixes or even comments on
discussion topics!
