Re: [mojarra-dev] [ee4j-pmc] Committer Election for Jason Lee on Eclipse Mojarra has started


Thanks Scott for providing the extra details. I was maybe too brief with "Jason Lee has been involved with
Faces (JSF) for a long time", but indeed, I meant things like those contributions.

Kind regards,
Arjan Tijms

The statement of merit in a committer election should highlight what the candidate has done for the project to which they are being nominated, not what they will do. Citing related experience is valuable and can certainly bolster a demonstration of merit, but does not by itself provide a complete statement of merit.

It sounds like the candidate is being tapped to help with releng which does not necessarily lend itself to Git contributions that are easily cited. Are there any pertinent conversations on mailing lists or forum threads that you can point to that demonstrate the candidate's familiarity with the project?

Some more historic background for Jason is below including his time on the (now Faces) JSF 2.0 expert group, which should be helpful, especially when considering historic design issues (not to say that we don't already have similar deep knowledge on the Faces team but one more IMO is welcome :-).

While he has been away for a bit, Jason has been involved with JSF (and Mojarra specifically) for a long time (since about 2005). While at Sun, he worked very close with Ryan Lubke on Mojarra (the two led the effort to give "the RI" a name, with Jason supplying the winning name). He served on the JSF 2.0 Expert Group (, and has led or contributed to several open source JSF projects (e.g, Woodstock, JSFTemplating, and Mojarra Scales). He spoke on JSF at JSFOne, JavaOne, and other conferences as well.

Hope this helps!

A committer election for Jason Lee on project Eclipse Mojarra (ee4j.mojarra)
was started by Arjan Tijms with this criteria:

Jason Lee is responsible at Red Hat for the integration of Faces and
specifically the Mojarra implementation into WildFly and JBoss, including
overseeing the releases and running the TCK. Jason Lee has been involved with
Faces (JSF) for a long time, and would therefor be instrumental in helping
out with doing actual releases for the Mojarra when so required. At the
moment there's only 1 person active for the project doing those releases, so
any help from an experienced engineer is extremely welcome.

For these reasons and the long-term outlook for their involvement on the
team, it is my pleasure to nominate Jason Lee as a committer on Eclipse
