Subject Re: Podling new committer votes
Date Wed, 10 Jul 2013 19:10:51 GMT
It doesn't.  People were just being pedantic
and untrusting of podling participants.  Committers
have accounts, not formal standing in the org.  There
is absolutely no reason for the IPMC to inject itself
in a podling election of a new committer, so let's just
leave oversight over the voting process to the mentors.
As a matter of fact, we don't even need to document a
standard for committer promotions- projects and podlings
alike are free to experiment with whatever process they
deem appropriate. Case in point is the Subversion process,
which essentially promotes new committers through lazy
consensus alone.

IOW +1 to roll back to pre-May 1, 2007.
