[technology-pmc] Re: Cleaning out inactive committers

Hi Bjorn,

dorme (David Orme) was only recently added but, as of yet, has not committed any code.  I've contacted him to see where he stands.  I will follow up when I know more.

The rest of the committers listed are all SWT folks.  While they don't actively commit code to Nebula they are there to review, guide and vote on new submissions and new committers.  

I understand Veronika has moved from the SWT team.  I'll leave it up to Steve and Veronika whether it makes sense to deactivate her.

Cleaning out inactive committers

Chris, Steve, Veronika,
As part of the fall house cleaning, I noticed that five of the committers on the Nebula 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. I also note that Steve and Veronika you two are on that list of inactive committers; I'm guessing that normal SWT keeps you too busy - do you really need to be on the committer list for Nebula?

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.
Thank you.
