Apache Mesos Committer Candidate Checklist

This document contains categories of contributions and behaviors relevant to becoming an Apache Mesos committer. As a committer candidate you can use a copy of this list to collect and aggregate data on what you have achieved so far. Neither is this an exhaustive list nor do all categories need to be addressed, since there can be reasonably diverse committer profiles. But some categories are always crucial to have covered, e.g., writing high quality source code and performing meaningful code reviews. Eventually, your nominator can hand in your filled-out variant of this list to the PMC to facilitate their reviewing your case.

  • Major source code contribution. Description of the contribution:

  • JIRA tickets created. List initiated JIRA tickets (or an equivalent JIRA query and count/summary):

  • JIRA tickets completed. List resolved JIRA tickets and committed review requests (or an equivalent JIRA query and count/summary):

  • Evidence of testing as a priority: A simple metric could be <#tests written> / <#testable tickets>. Or you could detail a particularly complex set of unit tests you had to write. Or explain how you have improved the project’s testing infrastructure or best practices. NOTE: These are just suggestions for documenting testing efforts. The ultimate goal here is convincingly corroborating that all contributed source code is adequately covered by tests.
