[technology-pmc] Cleaning out inactive committers

Title: Bjorn Freeman
As part of the fall house cleaning, I noticed that a number of the committers on the EPF project appear to be inactive:
Note that being an inactive Committer does not mean that the people are inactive on the project but it does mean that the person has not checked any code or web pages into CVS in over nine months.

The Technology Charter requires that Committers stay active in the project:
"A Committer that ... does not participate actively, or has been inactive for an extended period may have his or her commit status removed by the PMC."

These apparently inactive committers have not been inactive long enough that we will require their removal, but given how active the rest of the committers have been I'd like you to strongly consider either:
  • Encouraging these people to become active within the next month (in order to avoid being un-committerized), or
  • Tell us that these people are never going to be active so that we can un-committerize them. Committers that are removed can, of course, be reinstated when they resume their active work on the project.
Thank you.
