Subject [Discussion] Recognise Reviewers, Besides Committers and PMC
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2018 18:45:56 GMT
Dear MXNet Community:

There is a great discussion going on in terms of lowering the barrier of
entries and encourage more contribution to the project.  One of the general
goals is to encourage a broader pool of contributions. I want to make the
following proposal:

Besides Committers and PMC, let us also recognize Reviewers in the
community.  This is a "pseudo role" as there is no such official role in
Apache. But I want to explore the possibility of recognising active
reviewers for example, by adding a list of names in the contributor list.
In general, I find it is really helpful to have more code reviews.
Recognising good reviewers early enables us to find candidate for
committers, and encourage them to contribute and understand what is the bar
of code quality that is required to merge the code.

This can provide the community more evidence when recruiting new
committers. After all committers is about write access to the code and
understand the consequence of the responsibility -- which is usually can be
found in high quality reviews.

Please let me know what you think.
Tianqi
