This document contains categories of contributions and behaviors relevant to becoming an Apache Mesos committer. As a committer candidate you can use these guidelines to gauge 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.
For your reference, this is the template committers usually use when they nominate cadidates.
