Subject RE: REVISED Policy on Initial Committer and PPMC members
Date Thu, 12 Oct 2006 17:22:35 GMT
Having just been through it ;-) this sounds very reasonable to me.  

I am not sure the issue of emeritus committers needs to be addressed
since that can be handled by the project once it's up and running...
The main thing seems to be the clarification around the initial
committer list and PPMC membership.

Subject: REVISED Policy on Initial Committer and PPMC members

Based upon all of the discussion, I'll pose the following as what I hope
is
an agreeable solution:

----------------------

The Champion shall work with the incoming community to identify the
initial
committers.  The Champion shall review each with the incoming community
to
justify each inclusion (active committer, highly desired new committer,
etc., but not arbitrary).  The proposal does not need to include the
justification, although the Champion should share it (and any concerns)
with
the Incubator PMC.

The Champion shall work with the incoming community identify the initial
PPMC members*.  The Champion shall review each with the incoming
community
to justify each inclusion.    The proposal does not need to include the
justification, although the Champion should share it (and any concerns)
with
the Incubator PMC.

[Editiorial: the topic of Emeritus Committers is unaddressed, on the
grounds
that when an Emeritus Committer asks to become a Committer, there is
still a
vote, and there is no requirement that the Community apply any specific
barrier to (re-)entry.]

The Champion shall include the list(s) in the Project Proposal submitted
to
the Incubator PMC for voting to accept the project.  Upon a successful
vote
to accept, the proposal as accepted shall determine the initial
committer
and PPMC lists.

*Incubator PMC members have oversight on all Incubator projects, and
need
not be listed, although Mentors need to be identified when the project
is
accepted.

----------------------

Needless to say (as anyone who has observed the discussion around the
process proposal should realize), this is offered invite discussion,
wordsmithing and consensus.
