The bar is set by the project lead and committers.
Employment/funding status, or employer should not impact the
decision to nominate somebody as a committer.|
Having said that, an individual who is funded will at least potentially have the necessary time to produce a string of quality patches; by extension, they should have a easier time of becoming a committer than somebody who doesn't have that same sort of support.
If reviewing changes is a challenge for the development team, then perhaps its reasonable to suggest that that team focus (at least in the short term) on reviewing/accepting contributions from individuals who are the most likely candidates to become committers, thereby increasing the team's capacity to review/accept contributions.
Again, this give advantage to individuals who are funded/supported.
To be clear, I still don't think employment/funding status should be directly considered when considering a committer nomination. The natural advantage provided by funding should manifest in the contribution record.
Maybe Wim's right.
