Hi Grant, In Hadoop and ZooKeeper world it just means that you are willing to work with a committer to help get a patch committed (for a specific jira). It has nothing to do with you being an active contributor or you being expected to contribute to other parts of ZooKeeper. Its just localized to this jira :). Hope that clears things.
