Subject: [VOTE] Elect %NAME% as committer

Dear PMC,

I would like to elect %NAME% as committer.

I believe we reached consensus on the corresponding [DISCUSS] thread.

A successful election would signify that the PMC trusts this person to be loyal to the project and its interestes. This includes a binding vote in project decisions and write access to project infrastructure.

Required reading:

Per the bylaws, this vote uses the lazy majority approval model, meaning that three binding +1 votes and more binding +1 votes than -1 votes are needed.

Please cast your votes now.
