Become a Committer

An Apache IoTDB committeropen in new window has write access to the repository for merging pull requests, but you don’t have to be a code contributor to become a committer. Becoming a committer means that you have the project’s trust. Read the ASF documentationopen in new window for more about being a committer in the Apache Software Foundation.

The PMCopen in new window makes someone a committer via nomination, discussion, and then majority vote. We use data from as many sources as possible to inform our reasoning. Here are some examples:

  • IoTDB expert and evangelist (documentations, blogs, etc..)
  • Public events
  • Firsthand PMC testimonials

The PMC has assembled the following set of guidelines for becoming a committer.

An Apache IoTDBcommitter…

Takes many forms

There are many actions other than coding that build the trust we place in a committer - code review, design discussion, user support, community outreach, improving infrastructure, documentation, project management, etc.

  • They have a proven commitment to the project
  • They share their intentions with the community
  • They accept and integrate community feedback in their plans, designs, code, etc.
  • They earnestly try to make IoTDB better with their contributions

    • They earnestly try to make IoTDB better with code review
    • They accept and integrate feedback on their code
    • They know, follow, and enforce IoTDB's practices while reviewing/merging code - style, documentation, testing, backward compatibility, etc.
