Re: A page on confluence for who are committers etc


Hi Sendoro -

In principle, this is great - it would make the project more accessible.
When someone responds on list you'd have a sense of who they are and what
they are expert in, and if you have a key question you could @keyPerson to
bring it to their attention.

However, I am worried about the overhead.  We already have, in this vein:
1) https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=74690173

which is quickly out of date, although we could do a review more often.

2) PMC Report -
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/FINERACT/2018-07+July+Report
which is a quarterly report.

3) Open Issues for both Fineract and Fineract-CN projects (currently at
378?? ) and in that list who is reporter and who is assignee.
https://issues.apache.org/jira/issues/?filter=-5&jql=project%20%3D%20FINERACT%20AND%20resolution%20%3D%20Unresolved%20order%20by%20priority%20DESC%2Cupdated%20DESC


4) Inside Apache I believe that there are some analytic tools that can be
used - perhaps they could be dynamically linked into one of the wiki pages
(include<?>) ...which could help see who is submitting Pull Requests and
who is active on this list?  Don't know if that would be useful but could
try.

5) Outside of the Apache infrastructure there are tracking tools we could
potentially link to that would generate automatic reports on Contributors
and code changes.  Prominent among them is
https://www.openhub.net/p/fineract  (historical aside, Mifos was a beta
participant in ohloh open source project stats, which was acquired by
openhub, so there is some history to using this, and it gives us favorable
analysis compared to other Apache projects)

So, I think we should consider what is already there and figure out if some
sort of enhanced directory would be useful?  I would imagine something that
links automatically to the jira tickets and other resources.  i.e.  so in
one place you have the Committer name and a link to their PRs and a quick
profile perhaps pulled from linked in or otherwise to keep it fresh.  We
should explore what other projects do.

*Any Apache experts on list to comment?  *

Thanks,
James
