Contributor or non-contributor can both make their paths to committer, the community deeply appreciates both code or non-code contributions.

Become a PPMC member​

PPMC stands for the Podling Project Management Committee. It is responsible for project management, governance and ensures the project can be operated under the Apache Way. The committee makes decisions based on the PPMC members' votes. A PPMC member has the authority to cast a binding vote on various things, such as project releases, adding new committer or PPMC member, etc.

A contributor must become a committer first before becoming a PPMC member. There is no strict rules of when a committer will be qualified for being added to PPMC. The management committee makes a decision based on the involvement and impact of each committer. In general, a committer who makes consistent code or non-code contributions to the project should be considered as a PPMC candidate.
