Eclipse Committer Agreement

Third, on the future of a developer and committing in Eclipse Open Projects: The committer must be active (at least one commit in the last three months) If you have questions or are unsure of your responsibilities as a project manager or committer, please contact your project mentors or emo@eclipse.org. Please note that these efforts will take a few months, as this includes hundreds of agreements. We are committed to making this update as smooth as possible and not disrupting the flow of contributions. We hope that you will support the change and react quickly and positively when we contact you. Use the committer tool – name a committer link on the corresponding project page and follow the workflow to initiate a committer choice. Each projectcommitter creates a contribution questionnaire (Contribution Questionnaire, CQ). CQs are required to complete the due diligence review of project content and third-party content if all of these conditions are not met, a project transmitter must open a QC to request an audit by the IP team before deferring/merging the contribution. Creating a QC for a contribution to the project content requires two steps. First, a committer must create the CQ data set by providing basic information about the content. Second, the committer must add the source code for the content to the new CQ.

When all the information and source code have been collected, the workflow establishes a connection with the PMC for approval. Anyone can browse Eclipse Git-Repositorys. Use the abbreviated name of a project to quickly switch to the project`s Git repositories with a git.eclipse.org/c/ form URL (z.B. git.eclipse.org/c/dash for the repositories associated with the technology.dash project). When the paperwork is received and processed for a committer, the Eclipse webmaster begins to provide resources. When this process is complete, the Eclipse webmaster will provide information on the nature and contact information of the various resources and services available for the project. In some cases, known experts may be named as committers. Whether or not this type of appointment is permitted is left to the discretion of project management (including PMC).

If you are self-employed, unemployed or a student, you must sign the Individual Working Group Participation Contract (IWGPA). This agreement inserts the individual committing agreement and membership agreement necessary to participate in a draft specification. Once you have signed the IWGPA and made available to the EMO Records team, you will be configured as committer and you are good to go. Since the GitHub API offers no way to refuse the merger, Hook warns employees that contributors have not signed an ECA or that the commit message is not properly structured: IP is any object provided by an Eclipse server (including source code management systems, website and download server). Artifacts include (but not only) things like source code, images, XML and configuration files, documentation and more. Strict rules govern how we manage IP and your responsibilities as committers.
