I agree with Abel that it seems like
overkill to get PMC approval on all fixes (including simple ones)
by non-committers. Has this always been the process in Eclipse? I
would think not given the volume of contributions typically received.
committer guidelines statement seems more reasonable than the
provided on the IP poster. Does it make a difference if the
are employees of the same company as the submitting committer?
Actually, in rereading the poster,
does say "all code" at the top. Does this include any code
contributed for any fix/enhancement, even by committers? Does "under
the supervision of the PMC" mean the same thing as having each
individually approved by the PMC? I can't imagine this doing anything
but reducing progress to a slow crawl.
