Subject: XFS leadership and a new co-maintainer candidate
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.file-systems.xfs.general
Date: Friday 8th November 2013 11:03:41 UTC (over 3 years ago)
In the XFS community, we have 2 clear leaders in terms of contributions of 
significant feaures and depth of knowledge - Christoph and Dave.

If you look at the number of patches submitted by developers since 3.0 who
have 
more than 10 patches, we get the following:

     319 Author: Dave Chinner 
     163 Author: Christoph Hellwig 
      51 Author: Christoph Hellwig 
      35 Author: Linus Torvalds 
      34 Author: Chandra Seetharaman 
      29 Author: Al Viro 
      28 Author: Brian Foster 
      25 Author: Zhi Yong Wu <[email protected]>
      24 Author: Jeff Liu <[email protected]>
      21 Author: Jie Liu <[email protected]>
      20 Author: Mark Tinguely 
      16 Author: Dave Chinner 
      12 Author: Eric Sandeen 
      12 Author: Carlos Maiolino 

If we as a community had more capacity for patch review, Dave's numbers
would 
have jumped up even higher :)

It is certainly very welcome to bring new developers into our community,
but if 
we are going to add a co-maintainer for XFS, we really need to have one of
our 
two leading developers in that role.

Best regards,

Ric
