Re: HIVE-5104 patch status?
I'm not sure I understand what you are saying I see plenty of comments on
your ticket.


Applying patches
In order to grow and maintain healthy communities, committers need to
discuss, review and apply patches submitted by volunteers. The Committers
are also responsible for the quality and IP clearance of the code that goes
into ASF repositories.
Helping users
Committers should monitor both the dev and user lists for the projects that
they work on and (collectively) provide prompt and useful responses to
questions from users.
Monitoring commits and issues
Committers should review commit email messages for their projects and point
out anything that looks funny or that may bring in IP issues. Monitoring
Bugzilla / Jira for bugs or enhancement requests is also a responsibility
of Committers.

Generally we (committers & pmc) attempt to wade though the open jira issues
and review and commit open issues. Not all of us are full time, and not all
of us specialize across the entire code base, so the length of time a patch
can stay out there is variable.

My process is this:
Review jira for things marked "PATCH AVAILABLE"
If I understand the scope of the issue I review it and leave comments.
If ready I wait for the test and then commit.

I personally try to maintain a balance of 75% writing code 25% review but
lately I am about 80% review 20% code. I would like us to move to a road
map and feature based releases with smaller tuck-in issues. At the moment
everything that flows into our jira "looks the same" to me as we have
people going into several different directions, it makes it fairly hard to
order the incoming issues in priority.
