Subject [DISCUSS] Re: [VOTE] Tim Kim as committer
Date Fri, 23 Mar 2012 16:55:39 GMT
Thank Jukka, I've been avoiding casting my mentor vote as I was
unclear about the policies being adopted here. They felt uneven to me
but I thought it was perhaps because I've not being paying enough
attention, or perhaps it was because of this (to me) unfamiliar way of
working with github forks.

It's kind of strange because I'm a fan of very low barriers to entry
for projects. Usually as a mentor I find myself having to prompt
podlings to bring in new people. Here I find the opposite.

I'd really appreciate it if the project team could put together some
guidelines against which new committers will be evaluated. What is is
that they are looking for?

I'd also really appreciate it if VOTE threads contained some evidence
of contributions in the form of appropriate likes to commits, mail
traffic, documentation edits, etc. This both helps reviewers of the
vote and helps demonstrate to others how easy it is to gain an input
here (which is often a motivating factor)
