+ - Chrome grants first outside dev commit privileges!->

Submitted by ruphus13
ruphus13 writes: Google Chrome welcomes its first external core committer, moving closer to the 'true open source' philosophy it has been championing since the launch of the initiative. From the article, "Thus far, the Web browser has been written largely by Google programmers, though shortly after the software's public release, Google started accepting patches from outsiders. Now, though, an outsider has become an official insider. The search giant has bestowed upon the first non-Google programmer the privilege of adding code to the project." From Google's guidelines, "someone vying for committer status must "contribute 10 to 20 nontrivial patches, and get at least three different people to review them," according to the guidelines. Then that person must be nominated.".
