Subject New Committer

I'd like to nominate a new committer to the Jetspeed Dev list, Scott  
Weaver.
Here is a list highlighting some of Scott's patches to Jetspeed:

Jetspeed Patch History
------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
----------------------
- Fixed portlet skin inheritance problem and added a full set of unit  
tests
  for all five cases.  This also included a HeadlessTestCase base class
  for easily creating other test cases using Turbine outside of a  
servlet
  container.
- Ability to set the portlet control at the registry level.
- Fixed problem with all portlets of the same type on a single page  
being   
  processed when a single one was submitted.
- Re-wrote the Portlet instance api and services.
- Optimized portlet instance creation in  
JetspeedPortalPersistenceService
  to only create one instance per request.  This also guarantees that
  the instance you are working with is always the same and changes are
  reflected appropriately.
- Fixed invalid package references in JspAction and JspPortletAction
- Added a category filter to the set customizer.
- Add capability to add more than one the same portlet to a pane.
- Implemented security over tabs.
- Column span fix within jetspeed.vm
- Applied security to PortletSets.
- Corrected the DTD url for WML.
- Added support for the Klondike WAP browser.
- Added a CustomizerJspPortlet class.

Here are some of the key areas where Scott would like to work:


------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
---------------
- What my vision would be to have a plug-in for frameworks who want to  
interact with Jetspeed.  You would have a single "enabling" or  
"delegating" framework which is the current job of Turbine and one or  
more "processing" frameworks which would be responsible for processing  
an individual portlet based on that portlets definition specifying  
which framework it uses for processing. 

- Try to help out on the user-list when time allows.

- Can offer assistance in comparing Jetspeed to IBM's portal offerings.

- I am Currently working JSTL expression language-based set of custom  
tags by extending the current set of Jetspeed custom tags (because  
rtexpressions and scriplets are the children of the devil ;).
------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
---------------

My vote is +1
