Committer Guidelines

Projects at Apache operate under a meritocracy, meaning those that the developers notice participating to a high extent will be invited to join the project as a committer.

There are 4 steps you need to go through to become an eligible for consideration as a committer.

[1] If you only want to contribute documentation, you can skip the step of contributing code/patches. However, if you later want to start contributing code, you will still need to go through a code review and then have a new committership vote before being granted commit access to the code repository
