Contributors who give frequent and valuable contributions to a project of Globus can have their status promoted to that of a “Committer” for that project. A Committer has write access to the source code repository for that project and gains voting rights allowing them to affect the future of the project.
In order for a Contributor to become a Committer, another Committer can nominate that Contributor or the Contributor can ask for it. Once a Contributor is nominated, all of the Committers for a project will vote. If there are at least 3 positive votes and no negative votes, the Contributor is converted into a Committer and given write access to the source code repository for that project. Before receiving write access, a Committer must also affirm that they have read and understood these guidelines, and agree to abide by their terms, as they may be revised from time to time. The project should notify email@example.com of the new write access.
At times, Committers may go inactive for a variety of reasons. A Committer that has been inactive for six months or more may lose his or her status as a Committer.
A list of our current Committers can be found in our Globus Credits.
