Re: [OpenDaylight TSC] Fwd: Re: New committers

Colin Dixon <colin@...>

So, when the project proposal was approved, it was this:

There were 4 committers listed:
* Xiao Shi (Shixiao) (Yale University)
* Xin (Tony) Wang (Tonywang) (Tongji University)
* Y. Richard Yang (Yrichardyang) (Yale/Tongji University)
* Wendy Roome (Wdroome) (Bell Labs)

Those four people should have full committer rights in gerrit and should also be voting members of the project when it comes to adding new committers.

Along those lines, I have 3 requests:
1.) Remove Huaming Guo as an initial committer fomr the project proposal, since he wasn't one.
2.) If it's possible get the other current committers (Xiao, Xin, and Wendy) to vote on the newly proposed committers.
3.) Remove the new committers (Shu, Kai, Guohai, and Yichen) from the main page until they are voted on by the project committers and approved by the TSC.

Let me know if that makes sense.

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 TSC,

We have carried out a public vote for three new committers in ALTO project [0].  Richard, the only committer of ALTO project at the moment, has voted +1 for all three candidates.

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.
