RE: [dsdp-pmc] PMC Meeting - Thursday August 7

Hi all,
I don't think that quality of the contributions is really relevant at this point,
since that's up to the project (and nominator) to decide. What counts for
me is openness, transparency, and observing IP rules of engagement.
Moreover, becoming a committer is about committing Code, so at least
one of these contributions should be some code which actually made it into
the code base and thus shows that the contributor went through the
IP process.
Since Bugzilla is the only allowed means of inbound contribution (yes,
you cannot just copy & paste stuff from the mailing list into CVS -
see Figure 11 on
I'm in favor of requiring one bugzilla.
There's a corner case in Figure 2 of the Legal poster (contributors from
same company under supervision of the pmc don't need bugzilla). But
since this corner case is neither Open nor Transparent, I'm in favor
of requiring bugzilla also in this case.
All this being said, what about this wording:
Committer Nominations must reference at least 3 publicly visible
records of contribution. At least one of these must be a patch in
bugzilla on behalf of the nominating project.
References should be by means of hyperlink (URL) for easy review,
and can be mailing list, wiki or newsgroup contributions.

I like it with the following adjustments:

Candidate should have 3 good records of contribution: patches in bugzilla, good mailing list, wiki or news group contributions. One contribution must be from the nominating project.

RE: [dsdp-pmc] PMC Meeting - Thursday August 7

Minutes updated. Thanks again for the progress on the project plans.
Here is our proposal for future committer votes:
Propose 3 good records of contribution: patches in bugzilla, good mailing list contributions. Ok if one of those records is from another project.
Is this what we agreed to?
Action items:
Mark: Convert his eRCP plan slides to XML format by end of August
All: Finish project plans by Aug 31 so we can review in Sept meeting.
ALL: Complete the drafts of Board Report by end of August. Word document.
Mark: Check with Uriel to see if he's going to submit a paper to ESE.
Christian: Submit an ESE talk - could cover MTJ and TmL or Eclipse in Mobile.
Dave: Submit an ESE talk.
Doug: create the DSDP incubator and build the initial website.
Dave: Contact Eclipse legal about best terms of use for their vserver wiki.
