|Re: [technology-pmc] Today's Technology PMC conference call is canceled|
Cliff, These all look reasonable to me. I have one change (see below). Cliff Schmidt wrote:
A Committer has write access to the ... and/or bug triage access to bug tracking system.During the last PMC meeting, I was asked to propose revised wording around the committer guidelines for the meeting we were to have today. Issue #4 below is what I came up with, issues #1-3 are minor thoughts about other parts of the charter. Cliff ISSUE #1: "Users who contribute software or research become contributors" PROPOSED: --"Users who contribute software or research are referred to as 'Contributors'." ISSUE #2: "Contributors who has the trust of the Project's Committers" PROPOSED:--"Contributors who have earned the trust of the Project's Committers", or--"Contributors who have proven their merit to the Project's Committers"ISSUE #3: "A Committer has write access to the...and/or bug tracking system."-- might imply that contributors do not have ability to create new bugs or add to existing ones. Can't think of a better way to word it right now -- might not be worth changing...
ISSUE #4: ---BEFORE--- How a Contributor demonstrate trustworthiness to a Project's Committers is defined by each Project's Committer and the PMC. Without restricting or requiring the Projects to follow these mechanisms, here are some recommended practices: * A Contributor can give frequent and valuable contributions a Project or a component of a Project, or * A Contributor can have a extensive public record of contribution to similar projects or technologies, or * A Contributor can be well known to be trustworthy to all of a Project's Committers The process agreed on by a Project's Committers and the PMC must follow the Eclipse principles by being open and transparent. ---AFTER--- To be consistent with the principles of openness, transparency, and meritocracy, Committers should consider the following factors when nominating new Committers: * the frequency and quality of the nominee's contributions to the Project or to a component of the Project * the extent of the nominee's public contributions to similar projects or technologies, or * the degree to which the nominee is considered a recognized expert in the applicable fields by the Project's Contributors and Committers --- and then I'd bring the following paragraph up to immediately follow this section: "Becoming a Committer is a privilege that is earned by contributing and showing discipline and good judgment. It is a responsibility that should be neither given nor taken lightly, nor it is a right based on employment by an Eclipse Member company.

It looks like we'll reschedule it for May 22nd but... I'd like to call each of you and get your feedback sooner than that, if you don't mind - in other words, I'd like to move this charter change ahead rather than delay and delay and delay.
