                 <p>
 The proposal typically 
 <a href='proposal.html#template-initial-committers'>contains</a> a list of initial
committers.
 When a podling is bootstrapped, this list is used by the mentors to set up initial accounts.
 So, one way to become a committer for a podling is to be listed on the proposal as an initial
 committer.

                 <p>
 Piling onto a proposal by adding your own name as an initial committer is impolite.

 The right way to express interest is by a post to the list.

+             	<p>
 A podling needs to learn how to recruit new committers from its developers. So,
 another way is to show up on the list and start helping with the development.
 This path will help the podling more than adding your name to the list of initial committers.
