* One group of developer. A developer is a user who contributes to the
project in the form of code or documentation. They take extra steps to
participate in a project, are active on the developer mailing list,
participate in discussions, provide patches, documentation,
suggestions, and criticism. Developers are also known as contributors.
* One group of committer around XWiki.
A committer is a developer that was given write access to the code
repository. Not needing to depend on other people for the patches,
they are actually making short-term decisions for the project.
We also want to change the way to become committer on XWiki. Before
becoming committer on XWiki, you have to "earn" the merit to be part
of the development community. For those of you who are already
committer on XWiki, you will keep this right if you want. You just
have to send me a mail OFF LIST before the 9february to stay committer
and tell me why you want to stay committer.
We will write some rules to lead the project soon.
