Re: [technology-pmc] PMC approval needed for committer vote for Ralf Sternberg

Thanks Wayne. Just to add a bit more context. The Toast example is intended to be broad with people from different parts of the EclipseRT community stepping up to add their bit. In some cases that bit is large and in some cases small. The current situation is that Toast, the main code, was written by the three main authors and then opened up to others to contribute. Various people did and that is what you see here. As this moves forward we fully expect those people to continue to work on their contributions and enhance both Toast and the demonstrations of their favorite technology.

Hope that helps.

This is a great question, Eric.

Sadly, I have been less than transparent with this; I'd like to correct that oversight.

The contribution questionnaire lists the following authors:

Jeff McAffer : 31.6667%
Simon Archer : 31.6667%
Paul VanderLei : 31.6667%
Holger Staudacher : 1%
Benjamin Muskalla : 1%
Ralf Sternberg : 1%
Ed Merks : 1%
Ian Bull : 1%

The last five appear to have only contributed a small amount of code. However, they have contributed significantly to the project in terms of design and other input. Further, there is additional work to be done that will be undertaken by these developers. There is precedent for accepting code written by one set of developers along with a different group of committers who will carry the contribution forward.

I hope I'm not being too anal or pedantic about this, but...
I notice in the bug report that several of the contributors are listed as only contributing 1%. Is it necessary/prudent/appropriate to grant them committer status for such a small contribution?

I hesitate to ask (because most of the names are well-known and already committers on other projects and there is probably not any practical harm), but if we want to make our committer approval process consistent we should be open and conscious about this kind of situation.
