[ZF] Getting started, committers.

The Foundation was created legally some time ago.  We need to get a
board elected so we can start making decisions.  One of the first
steps is to get committer members.  I wanted to get this started a
couple of months ago, but, at the last minute, I read the committer
agreement for the first time and saw some issues that we needed to
address.  Sigh.

Anyway, we have a committer agreement at:


My intention is to invite the 67 people who committed to the source
code repositories between January 1, 2005 and May 11, 2006 to become a
committer.  I'll be sending invitations using zope.org email addresses,
so if you expect an invitation, you might want to double check that
your email address is up to date.

I've attached a draft invitation letter.  I'd like to send invitations
this coming Monday.

I guess we should decide soon when to hold the first board election.

Questions? Thoughts?


P.S., I'm not in charge.  I'm not volunteering to be in charge.  I'm
       just helping out with some of the logistics to get things
       started.  :)

Note that you and your employer, if any, need to fill this out. 
You can submit it in one of 3 ways:

    (I don't recommend this option if you are outside of the U.S.)

  - Fax it to the number shown the agreement.

    agreement, legal at zope.org.

An email acknowledging receipt of the agreement will be sent so that
you can know whether we have received it.

Let me know if you have any questions that are specific to you.
General Questions about the Zope Foundation or about the process of
becoming a committer member should be send to the Zope-Foundation
