Re: [dsdp-pmc] Please vote for conducting new committer for MTJ

You need to provide some public justification for why the Committers should trust Rauno. I realize that he's not going to write code, but he still needs to be accepted as legitimate by the Committers. Additionally, the public nomination/justification needs to be complete enough so that someone outside the DSDP team can understand why you are nominating this person. Consider the situation where a new person X, from a new company Y, thinks "I'd like to join DSDP, I wonder what they are like in that group" and goes reading through the mail archives to see who gets elected as a committer and why. If person X just see "I nominate Bob" and everyone votes "Yes, +1 on Bob", then there is very little data for person X (or his boss at company Y) to decide whether DSDP is a good group to join. Whereas if person X can read a couple paragraphs about each nominee and thus understand what it takes to qualify for the in-crowd at DSDP, he (and his boss) are much more likely to join.

Committer vote is not recorded and that should be done.
I am just wondering in practise that what previous track record of contributions means in this particular context.
And context is that this person won't actually be a "real code" committer. Has not been and won't be.
It is just practical problem that for Rauno to be able to help the project in other areas like maintaining WEB pages he just needs committer rights. Although we don't see him as real committer otherwise.
So actually we are asking necessary rights for him to be able to assist project in project management type of activies but we don't know in practise other way to get those rights than ask for committer rights (which is kind of wrong thing).
So how should we proceed, as we wouldn't like to load real committers with WEB updates and stuff which somebody else could do.

Without a committer vote and some track record of previous contributions this vote appears premature.

[dsdp-pmc] Please vote for conducting new committer for MTJ


Our project co-ordinator in MTJ is changing for the next release.
Petri Virtanen handled the first one but in next release of MTJ that will be done my Rauno Seppälä from Nokia.

Although he don't commit Java code, he needs committer rights to be able to work with web and such things.

Please vote to give committer rights to Rauno.

+1 from Mika.
