Re: [adoptium-pmc] Committer Election for jing dang on Eclipse Temurin Compliance has started

Hey Adoptium PMC.

I started a discussion about how we add new committers to Eclipse Temurin Compliance project sometime in March (the meritocracy rules for the Eclipse Temurin Compliance project are different from those for other Eclipse open source projects). I don't recall whether or how that discussion concluded.

Following that discussion, I observed that you discussed the next round of candidates in the PMC mailing list and then asked the EMO to just appoint the candidates. I assumed at that point that this was the process that you'd decided.

Now, it seems that we've evolved to doing both, which seems... excessive (I'm pretty sure that George was just trying to get it done, but it strikes me as funny to frame it this way).

It's probably the case that the EMO should have just appointed the candidate after the PMC members had all voted, but it's our usual practice to wait until we're explicitly asked by a PMC to do things (there is precedent for getting it wrong otherwise). It's certainly the case that I should have sent this email a while ago so that this could all just be done...

The problem with using the Eclipse Foundation's committer election infrastructure is that there is no public mailing list for the Eclipse Temurin Compliance project, so we notify the PMC mailing list that the election is in progress, but it is the project committers who have to vote. I don't know whether or not there is any practical concern as I believe that there is 100% representation of the PMC on the Eclipse Temurin Compliance project team. That is, if the PMC members all vote on the election, it will conclude successfully. With the committer election infrastructure, elections run for a week or until all project committers vote in the affirmative.

Anyway... I defer to your judgement. The EMO can appoint committers to the Eclipse Temurin Compliance project at the request of the PMC, or you can use the committer election infrastructure. Or sometimes one or the other. My strong preference is just that you don't do both.

Let me know if you have any questions.
