|[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.
