The Process in Brief

  1. It's expected that aspiring committers will earn the trust of the community by participating in our discussions and submitting clear, well-written patches for review.
  2. A potential new committer is nominated by a member of the community. This should be done publicly on the fluid-work mailing list.
  3. Current committers vote privately on the nomination. A private, moderated mailing list, committers, has been be set up for this purpose. Typical voting rules apply: +1 for agreement; if you vote -1, please include a rationale.
  4. Not everyone is required to vote, but if you know the nominee's work and code, you are encouraged to vote. Non-votes will be treated as 0.
  5. The voting period will last for a minimum of a week, or until all current committers have voted.
  6. If a nomination is denied, a member of the committers group will provide an explanation and coach the candidate on how they may earn commit access in the future.
  7. If the committer is accepted, they will be given an SVN account and will be subscribed to the commits mailing list. The commits list is public and archived.
