[eclipse.org-architecture-council] [Bug 305544] New: Consider shortening the committer election period

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=305544 
Product/Component: Community / Architecture Council

           Summary: Consider shortening the committer election period
    Classification: Eclipse Foundation
           Product: Community
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Architecture Council
        AssignedTo: eclipse.org-architecture-council@xxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: zx@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


As it currently stands, it takes 7 (+x waiting for webmaster) days for someone
to get commit access. From my perspective, this is a tad long. New committers
at Eclipse shouldn't be feeling that they are waiting for everything (it can be
discouraging if you're trying to contribute something). On top of that, most of
us are developers here and check our email religiously. There was a case
recently when someone was volunteering to contribute a library to Orbit but it
took about two weeks for him to finally get access to do so. That's a bit slow.
Another case awhile ago I recall was with the RAP incubator project. A
contributor wanted to contribute some Google Charting integration but had to
wait and noted that he was a tad discouraged. At Eclipse, we live by the
development process and should do anything we can do improve it.

I propose we look at shortening it to 3 days to speed things up. I don't see a
benefit of having it 7 days now... we all check our email enough.

What do others think?
