Thanks for your interest in becoming a Pig committer. We would certainly
love to have you on board.
Project committers are voted by PMC members. While there are no exact
rules, these are some of the things we look at
(1) Understanding of system philosophy, architecture and implementation.
What kinds of patches were committed on their behalf? What kind of
information they provide on the mailing lists?
(2) Understanding of the development process. How good was the quality
of the patches? How long did it take to get them into a committable
(3) Attitude. How well does the person react to the feedback? How
helpful they are to others? How actively they participate in the
(4) Long term goals. We would certainly like to have people that will
stay with the project for a long time.

Subject: RE: Welcome Jeff Zhang
Actually i have one question when i saw this email. so i would like to
about more information. I searched the jira issues by Jeff Zhang. First
appreciate all contributions made by jeff zhang on pig, but I can not
many contributions qualified to be a committer. So I would like to know
an outside developer can be a pig committer? Are there some procedures
anyone who submitted some patches can be a pig committer?
Thanks a lot ! As u can see, I also want to be a pig committer in next
months. Will it be enough if i submit several patches?
Thanks a lot,
