|[technology-pmc] Re: [ofmp-dev] Committer Election for Jan Blankenhorn|
It's actually not at all strange.When Nathan was hired by the Eclipse Foundation to work as a web designer, he had to go through a process of becoming a committer on the Phoenix project. He started by making several contributions though bugzilla which existing committers reviewed and then committed on his behalf. After he established a trend of contributing high-quality patches and other contributions, he was nominated as a committer. The same is true for Gabe and Karl on various projects they commit on.
Being a committer on an Eclipse project is all about merit. You have to demonstrate that you have the required credentials to be a committer before you can become one.
Can you describe a little more about the work Jan did on the Victoria project? What functionality did he contribute? Is there some existing part of OFMP that you can cite as work Jan did?

Hello! If someone starts to work on a project, it's a bit strange to expect any contributions, before he started. As I say, Jan is assigned to the task, and I am sure he will do his job well. In addition, I can add that he already worked for Victoria project - a closed source software which code base is a basis for initial part of OFMP. His responsibility was to develop a test suite for integration testing.

Has Jan made any significant contributions to the project already? Thanks, Wayne Aleksey Aristov wrote:Hello! Jan works for WeigleWilczek (one of the companies, behind OFMP). From now on, Jan will be in charge of OFMP project web site. We have to improve a lot there, so we will have a dedicated person for this job. /AAV On Fri, Dec 12, 2008 at 4:02 PM, Wayne Beaton <wayne@xxxxxxxxxxx> wrote:Can you please provide some rationalization for the nomination of Jan Blankenhorn as committer. We need a little more than "New committer on project" or "yo!". Something like "Jan provided us with a great contribution (bug xxxx) and has agreed to come on board to support it" or "Jan is a giant in the field and our project will benefit greatly from the added wisdom and guidance" Thanks, Wayne _______________________________________________ ofmp-dev mailing list ofmp-dev@xxxxxxxxxxx https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/ofmp-dev_______________________________________________ ofmp-dev mailing list ofmp-dev@xxxxxxxxxxx https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/ofmp-dev
