>Please join the Apache Harmony PMC in welcoming the project's newest
>committer, Xiao-Feng Li.
>Xiao-Feng has shown sustained dedication to the project, especially
>in the area GC and other VM issues, an ability to work well with
>others, and share the common vision we have for Harmony. We all
>continue to expect great things from him.
>When your note from infrastructure with your account info comes
>through (which it hasn't, which is my fault, which I'll fix - I
>wanted to get this announcement out so we can put it on our report to
>the board ) :
>As a first step to test your almighty powers of committership, 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, anything checked out of SVN, be sure that you have checked out
>'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
>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
>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
>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 PMC
