Jakarta EE 贡献者有资格成为提交者。可以通过以下几种方式成为提交者：1）对于现有的 Jakarta EE 项目，通过选举实现！在您做出了表明您了解开源项目工作原理的贡献之后，该项目的当前提交人将发起一次选举。现任委员必须在选举中投票；因此，创建一个高质量贡献的公共记录以便提交者（和社区）可以审查，是整个过程中最重要的部分。2） 另一种选择是通过做出初步贡献，成为新的 Jakarta EE 规范项目的提交人。项目的相应项目管理委员会（PMC）提名一组初始提交人，供执行董事（或其代表）批准如果您所在的机构是 Jakarta EE 工作组的成员，则相关机构已经签署了必要的文件，你没什么需要做的 如果您所在的机构不是 Jakarta EE 工作组的成员，则您需要填写以下表格：
影响云原生开源Java的未来，并与Java生态系统中的领先者建立新的关系。帮助提升 Jakarta EE 技术，以及 Jakarta EE 规范的质量和相关性，同时在帮助实现这一目标的过中获得满足感。
You absolutely don’t have to be the most brilliant, sophisticated, or advanced person in the world to be a committer, but you do need a lot of passion for the work and for the role. You must be willing to dedicate a lot of time to open source because you really like it and it’s your hobby. That passion will take you a long way. When you work with open source software, you have an advantage, and your customers have an even bigger advantage because you implemented the stack you’re working on and you know the other people involved.

The seriousness, competence, and hospitality in the Jakarta EE community cannot be matched in any other community. I believe I’m doing something important with some of the best programmers in the world. I think I can help make Jakarta EE better, and more importantly, I’m better at using Jakarta EE. This motivates me and makes me happy. The best thing about being a committer is seeing your work released, and the most challenging thing is finding areas where you can really make an improvement.

I like the fact that you can contribute to projects, review other people's work, and help the community. Keeping the community growing is one of the important factors for the success of the project. I want to help MicroProfile and Jakarta EE be as successful as possible, encourage innovation, and encourage others to join these communities and collaborate because these open source communities are full of passionate people

Getting involved in open source gives you experience, knowledge, and a really good feeling because you’re accomplishing something meaningful. Being a committer is a great opportunity to work on projects that are popular, widely used, and make life easier for project communities. Solving the community’s problems is very rewarding. I also enjoy the opportunity to solve a different issue every day because it allows me to have rich experiences in a variety of situations.

I like the openness, the access to the code base, the expertise, and the people who are developing the software. It’s a great knowledge base. There are many ways to contribute, from answering questions on the various project mailing lists to filing issues or creating pull requests. You can influence a project by issuing a patch, having an expert review that patch, and having it committed to a project. The big advantage of being more involved is access to expertise.

Getting involved in an open source project is a very good way to solve problems you’re having because Eclipse open source is all about contributions and collaboration. If you have a project that’s not getting appropriate attention, the Eclipse and Jakarta EE community can help you move it forward.
You can start by doing small stuff. It may seem as though it’s not important, but it very often is. You can grow your knowledge about a project and the processes around it to gain experience and work toward committer status if that’s what you want.

The best thing about being a committer on an open source project in an environment such as Jakarta EE is that it’s very different from my daily work. At work, I rarely get feedback from the people who actually use my code, whereas here, I can communicate directly with people and respond to their needs. That's a lot of fun for me. Have the confidence to contribute something. You’ll find that the people working on most open source projects gladly accept every improvement.
