RE: [eclipse-pmc] PMC approval needed for committer vote for SzymonBrandys

The committer lists for the Eclipse project in the Foundation's database is all wrong. The set of people the portal thinks can vote rarely matches the set of people who actually have commit rights. I think at least me/Tod/Paul/Stefan in the list below don't actually have commit rights in this area. This is a known problem that we have reported to the foundation in the past:

In the meantime, we generally follow an honour system of only voting on a component when we actually have commit rights. Note also Kim and Sonia in the list below have commit rights on all Eclipse project components for releng purposes, but generally don't take part in voting in areas they don't work in directly.

On the other hand, it's relatively easy to pick out truly inactive commiters, at least at the project level, using I believe a purge of inactive commiters was done last year though, before the membership vote on by-law changes (since too many inactive commiters could have spoiled the vote).

Please respond to

RE: [eclipse-pmc] PMC approval needed for committer vote for        SzymonBrandys


8 committers from 12 not voting within a week?

Is it time to prune some inactive committers, i.e. move them to
"committer emeritus" status? That should be easy to do in the portal...
