+###I've just been voted in as a Committer.  What do I need to do?
+First, congratulations.  Your contributions to the project have been noted and we 
+hope that as a Committer you will be even more active.
+But before you are officially given Committer permissions, there are a few 
+administrative steps that you will need to complete. 
+ 1. Submit a signed [ICLA] [4] to Apache.
+ 1. Wait for the ICLA to be received and recorded by Apache.  You will know 
+when this has occurred when your name appears in the [Unlisted ICLAs] [5] section 
+on the Apache Committers page.  This could take a couple of days, longer if you
+submitted the ICLA via post.
+ 1. Once the your ICLA has been recorded, you should send a note to the [PPMC] [6] 
+and request an Apache account.  You will want to include your full name and email address,

+as you entered in the ICLA, as well as your preferred userid.  Please [check first] [7] 
+that your preferred userid is not already in use by another Apache Committer.
+ 1. Once your Apache account has been created, you will receive an email with
+further instructions for setting up your account.  This may take a couple of days.
+ 1. If you were also voted as a PPMC member, you should then [subscribe] [8] to the 
+PPMC's private mailing list.
+ 1. Finally, you should read the ["Guide for new committers"] [9]
