This has been debated in many communities before. Here is of the best
I've seen - Contribution can be documentation, community management,
etc. Anything that helps the project and is recognised to be valuable
enough that the individual can gain karma over a period of consistently
providing value to the project (OpenStack). That is the current
committing population and board need to agree that the contribution is
valuable and a track record of contribution exists.
