Re: [pass-dev] Committer Election for Allen Moore on Eclipse Public Access Submission System (PASS) has started

Greetings Eclipse PASS committers.

The foundational principles of the Eclipse Foundation Development Process are openness, transparency, and meritocracy.

With regard to the last one, meritocracy... the basic idea is that one earns responsibilities in a project via public demonstration. In the case of committer elections, the expectation is that the nominee will first demonstrate to the project team and community that they understand their responsibilities and the various practices involved with being a committer before they are elected into the position.

The easiest way to demonstrate this merit is by making several high quality contributions to the project via pull requests to one of the project's Git repositories. There are other ways, but this is the most common means.

Frankly, if Allen is prepared to be a committer on the project, then Allen should be able to make a handful of contributions to the project via pull requests. With nine existing committers responding +1 to the nomination, I have to assume that at least some of them should be prepared to accept pull requests.

Is there some existing public demonstration of merit that you can cite?

For more information, please have a look at Make This Person We Hired a Committer.

On behalf of the Eclipse Technology PMC,
