Subject Re: Committers

(this is a little off topic and is general in nature rather than 
specific. i'm haven't followed the schema stuff closely - so i can't 
say anything about radu - but i'm surprised that kevin isn't already a 
committer which seems to be a good test :)

it's interesting how different communities handle election of 
committers.

over in jakartaland, we've always held elections for committers in the 
open (elections for the pmc have always been private). AIUI httpd (on 
the other hand) conducts discussions about the merits of committers on 
the private pmc list. i've heard it said that one of the reasons why 
jakarta is said to have a lower bar to committership than httpd is a 
result of this practice. i'm not sure how true this is but i can say 
that whilst i've never heard it said that "a committer is doing well 
but needs a little more time to mature" in a jakarta committer 
election, i have heard it said in the private pmc elections. it would 
certainly be more difficult to express this diplomatically on an open 
list.
