Re: [cdt-dev] Vote for Committer status for Patrick Chuong was started by Pawel Piech

Ok. I will abstain from voting this time (consider that you and Doug
convinced me),
but next time (for next committer) I would like to see some evidence of
involvement in the community and coding practices. IMHO demo of some
functionality is not a prove of anything,
and I don't see enough patches to have any conclusions (even including
platform ones). Pin and clone support
was not even mentioned in nomination and I don't know if it even
exists in a form of patches. I asked a statement from
a nominee because you did not put any effort of explaining who he is
and what is intentions for cdt (at least in the beginning).
I still don't know his intentions for cdt contributions (only the platform).

Btw, platform stuff with James was a different case because James was
already a committer on another eclipse project,
which is big evidence on its own.
