Subject Re: Adding Jeff Roderburg to Lucene.Net as a committer
Date Wed, 10 May 2006 18:01:04 GMT
The site is down, but here's my personal recollection of how committers 
are added:

1. A PMC member starts discussion with on project PMC list (or 
incubator-general for incubating projects).  One week should be allowed 
for discussion of the nomination.

2. The nominator should then call a vote with a VOTE message on the same 
mailing list.  One week should be allowed for votes.  At least three +1 
votes and no -1 votes are required.

3. The prospective committer should file an ICLA.  Their employer should 
file a CCLA if they will be employed to work on Apache projects and 
their employer does not already specifically permit that (and most 
employment agreements specifically forbid this sort of thing).

4. Once the CLA(s) are on file, the nominator should send a message to asking for an account to be created.  The message should 
provide a desired username, forwarding email address and cite the vote 
in the mailing list archives.

5. Once the account is created, the nominator should email the chair of 
the project or its PMC, asking that Subversion access be given.

That's my take.  I think Jeff is at 4, although the voting was rather 
casual (no VOTE-subject messages).  I am happy to give Jeff Subversion 
access (5), but I cannot do that until he has an account (4) and I know 
the name of that account.
