Hi Colin,

Out of curiosity, what do you mean when you say "Richard, the only committer of ALTO project at the moment"?

As I see it you have 8 committers listed here:

I think there is a misunderstanding here. When we listed the names on the preceding Web page, we thought those names would be contributors, i.e., they would participate in the project, but without the ability to commit in the sense of git approval. Hence, I am the only git committer/approver. This also explains why we added Huaming without seeking the approval of TSC. Does this clarify?


That's also odd because you only have 5 initial committers listed here and I don't remember the TSC approving more:

More odd is that you seem to have added  Huaming Guo as an initial committer after the project was approved on January 8th:

Dear Kai,

I sure am impressed by the work of you three. As main contributors of the ALTO project, I support you three to become commiters to move the project further:
Jensen: +1
Kai: +1
Shu: +1

Hi Richard and all,

I'd like to nominate three new committers for the ALTO project: Jensen, Kai and Shu.

Jensen has submitted a lot of commits on improving the code quality [1] by writing tests and fixing bugs and he is now a key member of the development team.

Kai ans Shu have implemented most components of ALTO Lithium release [2, 3].  They are also the actual project leaders of this project currently.


Committers please vote +1, 0 or -1 for each of these developers.
