Mentoring a new committer ¶
So I’m a committer now. What’s next? What rights do I have now that I didn’t have before? What are the social conventions around making a commit?
These things vary from one project to another, so clearly documenting them for your particular project is critical.
Here’s the basics that are true across (almost) all Apache projects.
- Encouraging other contributors
- Good commit messages
- Becoming a PMC member
