Subject Possible process improvement?
Date Wed, 14 Oct 2015 20:07:20 GMT
Hi,



I’m a committer/PMC member on the Trafodion podling.



One thing I’m noticing about the new committer process //
community.apache.org/newcommitter.html#new-committer-process is that we
sometimes get hung up on the step, “Request creation of the committer
account”.



The reason for the hang up often seems to be, the new committer has
expressed a desire for a particular apache ID, but has not specified where
e-mail for that ID should be forwarded to.



Now, the iCLA form itself asks for the preferred apache ID. But that form
does not ask about forwarding e-mail ID. Too, the receipt of the iCLA is
forwarded to the podling’s private list, but not the iCLA itself.



Also, the committer accept template makes no mention of providing a
forwarding e-mail address.



So, the mentor has to ask. And the mentor often doesn’t have an e-mail
address for the new person. So that request has to be relayed through the
podling PMC private list, and someone there who knows the individual can
ask.



I can think of a couple of ways to make this more efficient.



1.       Change the iCLA to include forwarding e-mail address. And when the
iCLA is received, it is shared with the podling private list.

2.       Alternatively, change the committer accept template in //
community.apache.org/newcommitter.html#new-committer-process to ask for a
forwarding e-mail ID along with asking for the preferred apache ID.



Thoughts?



Thanks,



Dave
