+<p>If a developer has contributed a signicant number of high-quality patches, is interested
in continuing the contribution, has demonstrated the ability to work well with others under
the Apache guidelines, it may be proposed to grant that developer <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/glossary.html#CommitAccess">commit

and <a href="http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html#roles">roles</a>.</p>
+<p>Discussion of a potential new committer should take place on the project's PPMC
list (normally, it would take place on a project's PMC list). After vetting the new candidate,
the vote can take place either on the PPMC list (with notice posted to the Incubator PMC list)
or on the developer list (with a notice posted to the Incubator's general list). The latter
practice of a private discussion followed by a public, pro-forma, vote is re-emerging as a
Best Practice for ASF projects.</p>
