|Re: [eclipse.org-project-leadership] Time to trim inactive committers|
Could you point me to an example project so that I can understand what you're suggesting? I agree that the source code commits activity information is only an indication, a hint, at the activity or inactivity of a committer - as project lead, you know much more about the project than any automated tool could.
I'm happy to improve the tool, but I'm not exactly clear on what you are asking for here. Maybe you want it to show green if the person hasn't had their account long enough? That's a good idea (and now bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=227352).
Again, you are correct and you are the final arbitrator of committer activity. The current Foundation database (as you point out), does not have enough information to determine the committer elections.
Mike has scheduled a Board vote on the new development process wording at the June 19th Board meeting.
