Subject Re: PPMC versus commiter
Date Wed, 19 Dec 2012 16:59:27 GMT
The thing to avoid is to wind up with a significant number of active contributors on a project
who are not on the pmc.  Separating committers from pmc members can be a symptom but it's
manageable under the right conditions.  Note committers aren't the only class of contributors
that projects might be unintentionally excluding from pmc participation.
