Re: [hudson-dev] Committer vote for Lucas Panjer has been vetoed by the PMC


Regarding this election. As far as I understand, it should not have happened to begin with as I am listed as an initial committer on the original Hudson proposal. See:  For reasons outside my control, I was not successfully provisioned as a committer to the project upon initial creation. (I received a notice of a failed election due to expiration and missing paperwork. Unfortunately I was never notified that I needed to submit any paperwork.)

My understanding that my being on the proposal should be sufficient for me to have commit rights on the project.

In terms of my contribution intentions, I have been involved in the Hudson governance meetings, representing Tasktop and we plan on making code contributions when the project starts being released from Eclipse infrastructure. I did not realize that this delay would end up causing any problems of this sort.

In retrospect I should not have requested a new election as I am joining Hudson as an initial contributor. What I should have done, and what I am now asking for is that I be added as an initial committer to the project as specified in the proposal. The alternative seems to be to have me refused the commit rights I was initially granted and to re-earn them. I don't see the point of that since like other committers on the initial proposal I have been involved in the project and have the intent to contribute. While it seemed redundant, I was happy to see my intent endorsed by the other committers with their vote. 

I look forward to contributing to the project, and hope we can find a straightforward way for Eclipse Hudson to benefit from Tasktop's participation.
