[tools-pmc] Fw: PMC approval needed for committer vote for ....

Titan Committers,

We, the Tools PMC were asked to approve 6 new committer elections similar to the attached one. Normally that is a wonderful thing. But, in this case, there was no evidence given of Eclipse commits or history, which is typically required to become a new committer. That is how Eclipse ensures "merit" and not simply that someone, say, works for a certain employer.

Normally, if a project has "just started" we do not mind bending the rules a little, but Titan has been at Eclipse for one year now, so I would think that is time enough to learn the Eclipse rules and process, and also time enough for new committers to develop some history with the project.

So can Elemer or someone explain to the PMC a little more what this is about? Did the nominations just fail to mention the commits and history at Eclipse? Was there some special new contribution of code? Or is there a misunderstanding of what it takes to become a new committer?

I don't mean to slow things down, and certainly don't want to discourage new committers -- I am sure they are all worthy. But, I do feel an obligation to "enforce the rules" that everyone must follow since every exception makes the next one easier, until there are no rules at all! Especially for 6 committers at once! Makes me think something is going on that is not well understood or documented?
