The Process in Brief
- A potential new committer is nominated by a member of the community. This should be done publicly on the fluid-work mailing list.
- Current committers vote privately on the nomination. A private, moderated mailing list will be set up for this purpose. Typical voting rules apply: +1 for agreement; if you vote -1, please include a rationale.
- 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.
- 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.
