Subject Re: When does one become a committer?
Date Sat, 23 Jul 2011 19:38:28 GMT
For me the main point is the vote. You should note that it is still 
possible that one can rejecting the vote and still keep the role as a 
normal contributor, user, etc. So, no vote, no committer status. *) 
Everything else like signed iCLA, chosen ID, subscribing to mailing 
lists is kind of following a process.

Of course this doesn't count for the inital committer. Here the ID could 
be the important part.
