Subject [jira] [Updated] (HADOOP-8248) Clarify bylaws about review-then-commit policy
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2012 01:13:19 GMT

Todd Lipcon updated HADOOP-8248:

    Attachment: proposed-bylaw-change.txt

Here is the proposed change as a patch. Copy-pasting inline for easy reading:

         <li> <strong>Code Change</strong>

            <p>A change made to a codebase of the project and committed
            by a committer. This includes source code, documentation, website
            content, etc.</p>

            <p>Such changes require lazy consensus of active committers,
            but with a minimum of one +1. The +1 must be provided by a committer
            who is not a primary author of the patch.
            The code can be committed after the first +1, unless
            the code change represents a merge from a branch, in which case
            three +1s are required.</p>

            <p>In the case of trivial changes, a committer may commit after a
            non-binding +1 vote from a contributor or the issue reporter. The
            definition of what constitutes a trivial change is subject to the
            best judgment of the committer, but should generally be limited
            to changes such as: documentation fixes, spelling mistakes, log
            message changes, or the addition of new test code.</p>

            <p>In the case of feature branches, the creator of the branch
            may elect to forego this review-then-commit policy on that branch,
            with the understanding that three committers must provide a +1
            vote before its eventual merge as described above.</p>

should clarify the bylaws with respect to the review-then-commit policy. This JIRA is to agree
on the proposed change.
