[technology-pmc] Cleaning out inactive committers

Title: Bjorn Freeman
Jeff, (w/ cc to the Tools PMC)
This email is a bit unusual because we never officially changed the project lead to you (you never answered my email of August 15th on the topic). But I'm assuming your are the Photran project lead. Anyway, as part of the fall house cleaning, I noticed that two of the committers on the Photran project appear to be inactive:
You also said (in August) that the following committer is no longer on the project:
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."

We ask that either:
  • You explain why these people should continue to be committers in spite of appearing inactive, or
  • You tell us to "un-committerize" them. Committers that are removed can, of course, be reinstated when they resume their active work on the project.
We also ask that you tell us how the official Project Lead is so that we can update the records.
Thank you.
