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

Thanks Elena,
You are correct that I didn't take enough time to write up this nomination, apologize for that and promise to take the election process more seriously in the future.  I'm glad that the follow up discussion helped resolve some of the uncertainties, and thank you everyone that participated.

I also appreciate Doug's latest comments that we may be painting ourselves into a corner if we start to describe what is required for a candidate to gain community's trust.  CDT is a very broad project to have a single committer list, and there are committers that were accepted who I still don't recognize by name (see the active committer list), because they work in areas that I'm not familiar with.

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.

The way I read it, the committer nomination guildelines do not list any
specific number of patches, dev list posts, etc., that are required for a
committer nomination.  It only specifies that contributors need to earn
other committers' trust.  As far as I know CDT doesn't have any written
guidelines on what contributors have to do to earn commit rights and instead
it has always relied on the judgment of existing committers.  Also, as long
as I remember, CDT community has been relatively open and welcoming of new
members and I believe that's been a big part of the project's success.  So
in my judgment Patrick has met this historical standard of trust.

Patrick did not ask me to nominate him and I don't know his intentions.  I'm
actually not even sure whether TI will give him permission to be a
committer.  However, given that TI's product is CDT based, and that they've
been involved with it for at least the last 5 years, I assume that he will
continue to be involved.  Also, I've never seen anyone before asking for a
statement from the nominee so your request is rather unusual, but it's up to
him to answer.

Well you are saying you did it as a "reward"? I don't think it is
right approach.
First of all lets not involve platform into this decision, because if
you think he has enough
contributions for the platform you should have nominated him for the
Does he plan to be an active committer on cdt project? If he committed
7 patches over 5 years I won't call
it active... What is he planning on contributing to cdt?
Does he actively participate in cdt dev list? (I have not even herd of
him at all before cdt summit...)
Does he ask you to nominate him or it was your idea? Can I hear from
him actually?

I feel I should apologize here, because I sort of "winged" this nomination
and I didn't take the appropriate amount of time to explain my motivation to
nominate Patrick.  Unlike most committer nomination, which are made for a
colleague, I have no vested interest in this nomination.  I've simply found
that Patrick's bugs and patches have been very helpful to me and I hoped
that I could make it easier for him to continue to help out.  Also,
especially after today's call where we put Mike Wilson on the spot over
platform commit rights, I thought it would be appropriate to recognize his
contributions which have come over the last 5 years (maybe more).
