Subject Re: Graduation resolution does not allow for committers != PMC
Date Fri, 04 Apr 2014 11:46:43 GMT
As a practical matter the tlp migration scripts seed the
committer group from the list in asf-authorization for svn.
The PMC is taken directly from the resolution, but if there
is no corresponding group in svn (say UCB applies to
the project) then the PMC chair has to seed the committer
group themselves.

It is remarkably easy for a chair to ensure that everyone on the pmc
is in fact in the unix group for the project:

% foo | foo --add -

the code will filter out any redundancies automatically.
