Apache ZooKeeper Committer Onboarding

Welcome Email

You will receive an email similar to the following, please read it and follow the steps outlined:

Hi [new committer],

The Apache ZooKeeper project would like to offer you commit privileges. We have 
been impressed with your contributions and believe that your continued
involvement will improve the quality of the systems we produce. These
commit privileges give you access to the ZooKeeper codebase. With these privileges
comes responsibility. A committer cannot commit their own code, so the
expectation is that committers will be actively reviewing patches and
participating in releases and technical discussion. Acceptance indicates
an increased level of commitment to the community.

If you are interested in becoming a committer, please just let us know
by responding to this message (be sure to CC: private@zookeeper.apache.org).
If you accept this invitation, we'll set your account up with
required privileges, once we have received your Contributor License
Agreement (CLA),
details of which are available here: http://www.apache.org/licenses/#clas

There's some general Apache information for new committers listed at
http://www.apache.org/dev/committers.html .

ZooKeeper onboarding details are available here

We all hope that you accept this invitation!

--The Apache ZooKeeper Project Management Committee

Becoming a committer steps

  1. Download and print the Apache Contributor License Agreement from here. You need to sign it and fax it to Apache. In the past I've found its often faster to also post it via snail mail
  2. wait for your name to appear on the list of received CLAs
  3. once thats done let us know and we can apply to Apache Infrastructure to have your account created; we'll also need to know
    • your full name
    • your preferred email address
    • your preferred unix account name

Getting started at Apache

  1. Add yourself to the Credits page (edit credits.md) Update the website and verify your name appearing on Credits page.
  2. Now go read the instructions on the new committers guide. Its also worth viewing http://www.apache.org/dev.

Setting up your git account

1. Once you've got your Apache account working you need to enable git access; See this document for details of setting up git


Getting Karma in JIRA and Confluence

Mail the dev list and ask for karma for JIRA / Confluence giving them details of your username you used to register with them both. We can then grant the necessary karma so you can start grabbing JIRA issues or editing the wiki
