Subject [announce] New Apache Harmony Committers : Mikhail Loenko, George Harley, Stepan Mishura
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2006 12:00:20 GMT
Please join the Apache Harmony PPMC in welcoming the projects 3 newest 
committers :

   Stepan Mishura, Mikhail Loenko and George Harley

These three individuals have shown sustained dedication to the project, 
an ability to work well with others, and share the common vision we have 
for Harmony. We all continue to expect great things from them.

Gentlemen, as a first step to test your almighty powers of committitude, 
please update the committers page on the website.  That should be a good 
  (and harmless) exercise to test if everything is working.

Things to do :

1) test ssh-ing to the server people.apache.org.
2) Change your login password on the machine
3) Add a public key to .ssh so you can stop using the password
4) Set your SVN password  : just type 'svnpasswd'

At this point, you should be good to go.  Checkout the website from svn 
and update it.  See if you can figure out how.

Also, for your main harmony/enhanced/classlib/trunk please be sure that 
you have checked out via 'https' and not 'http' or you can't check in. 
You can switch using "svn switch". (See the manual)

Finally, although you now have the ability to commit, please remember :

1) continue being as transparent and communicative as possible.  You 
earned committer status in part because of your engagement with others. 
  While it was a  "have to" situation because you had to submit patches 
and defend them, but we believe it is a "want to".  Community is the key 
to any Apache project.

2)We don't want anyone going off and doing lots of work locally, and 
then committing.  Committing is like voting in Chicago - do it early and 
often.  Of course, you don't want to break the build, but keep the 
"commit bombs" to an absolute minimum, and warn the community if you are 
going to do it - we may suggest it goes into a branch at first.  Use 
branches if you need to.

3) Always remember that you can **never** commit code that comes from 
someone else, even a co-worker.  All code from someone else must be 
submitted by the copyright holder (either the author or author's 
employer, depending) as a JIRA, and then follow up with the required 
ACQs and BCC.

Again, thanks for your hard work so far, and welcome.

The Apache Harmony PPMC
