Re: [ee4j-community] Committers don't have to contribute code

Mike/Wayne,

Thanks for jointly answering that.
Not sure, if a JUG with official members who are registered with that entity and show up regularly would count? Otherwise it is probably just employees like both of you are at Eclipse Foundation.

The funny thing is, that while some projects are still at the JCP, this seems perfectly fine there:
https://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=382

To my knowledge neither Mark nor Emily are permanent employees of Eclipse Foundation Inc, yet they both represent it as Spec Lead Organization being committer members only.

So short answer, a JUG like LJC is not a legal entity, therefore cannot
have committers or show up in the mentioned stats?

Incorrect.

The LJC is a legal entity, and is already a member of the Eclipse
Foundation. As is SouJava. Some JUGs are legal entities, some are not.

Now whether it would make sense for committers to claim that they work
for the LJC is a different story. Someone like Martijn Verburg is an
officer of LJC, so that would be fine. Some person who shows up a LJC
meetups but has no formal affiliation with the LJC legal entity would
almost certainly not be able to claim that their contributions were
coming from the LJC.

I am unaware of the legal status of LJC.

Members of the LJC can be committers if they are elected into the position
like anybody else. Any commit activity from those committers will be
attributed to the member company with which they are affiliated, if any. We
have no mechanism for specifying other affiliations.

HTH,

Wayne

Wayne,



thanks a lot for this explanation.



You might want to filter out the "glassfishbot".



Thanks

Company logos show up on project pages when:

*Â Â Â ÂThe company is a member of the Eclipse Foundation;
*Â Â Â ÂThe company has provided their logo to the Eclipse Foundation; and
*Â Â Â ÂAt least one employee of the company is a committer on the project and has pushed at least one commit into any branch of any project repository in the last three months.

So yes. If you want your company logo to appear on a project page, you need to have a committer that actually pushes commits. Note listing a committer as an "Also-by" entry in a Git Commit <https://www.eclipse.org/projects/handbook/#resources-commit>Â counts (make sure that you get the email address right). So a committer can give credit to a collaborator when pushing a commit.



The process that builds the chart data only knows what it finds in the Git repository, so some "bot" users will appear. I can filter them out if I know about them. I'll see what I can do about the "genie" users. Similar to logos, only member companies show up in the charts. "Contributor" groups non-committer contributors together; "Unaffiliated" groups together those committers who do not work for a member company.



I'm not sure what you're asking with your last statement. The charts and the list of companies is generated exclusively by the criteria that I've set above. Having your company logo/name appear on a project page is a benefit of membership with the Eclipse Foundation (independent of any working group affiliation).



FWIW, developers need to earn their way to committer status on a project by demonstrating merit <https://www.eclipse.org/projects/handbook/#elections-committer> . Employment status or employer affilication is not an accepted criterion for becoming a committer (nor is a change in affiliation a reason to retire a committer).



HTH,


Wayne

Wayne,



They don't, but if an organization wants to show up under https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/ee4j

next to Oracle, Red Hat or IBM, they probably might like to ;-)



Similar stats for MicroProfile: https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/technology.microprofile/who show, that between 25 and 40% (not sure, if the "microprofile-genie" bot is included in the 40.5% "Contributor" or 5% "Unaffiliated") are committers and contributors who don't work for a big company.



Would it be possible to filter those bots out also from the individual diagram?



Those of us with long JCP background know, JUGs were not allowed to contribute directly to a JSR while it could join the EC. Is that similar here, meaning, all bigger JUGs like SouJava or LJC could buy with a Strategic Membership is a few extra seats in various working groups and boards or similar bodies, or could such a Strategic Member also have committers on their behalf and would therefore show up under "Active Member Companies" assuming their members are active of course?



Thanks,

Werner
