Hey Nicolas,

you've contributed quite a few patches to GStreamer, including a fair amount of non-trivial and cool stuff, so I think you definitely have the technical background to become a committer. You also hang out on IRC and answer questions on the mailing lists, which is great too.

There's still a feeling though that your patches would still benefit from review prior to committing, and that your activity in GStreamer is a bit sporadic. We usually require regular sustained activity from committers in spe over some longer period of time. (And related to the current development branch.)

So I'd say let's revisit this again in a few months time, maybe in January or so?
