[] Projects with non-committer committers

Greetings folks,

The Eclipse Foundation maintains a strict list of committers who are approved to commit, push and merge changes to Eclipse Project repositories. The EF uses a sync script to ensure GitLab and GitHub teams are in sync with our committer records.

We have deployed a new version of the committer sync script today and one of its newest features is removing non-committers that were added to projects by other means than the sync mechanism. Previously, the script was only adding/removing users to/from groups.

A Project Lead with Maintainer role can, among other permissions,  add members in GitLab. However, a project lead with Maintainer privileges are not allowed to add committers. A proper following of the Eclipse Development Process must be maintained.

With the recent execution of the sync, some non-committers that were added by Project Leads were stripped of their committer permissions. If your project is in this scenario, please comment on so we can help you realign.  We are in the process of compiling a list of those projects involved.

Apologies for the inconvenience this may have caused. I am providing a link to the Eclipse Development Process document:
