to be a committer. If you are interested, you basically fill out a CLA (Committer License

list discussions, etc), discuss the merits of individual contributors, and where the PMC feels
it is appropriate -- discuss and vote new committers into the project. The discussion and
vote typically will occur on the kitty-private mailing list.
