+### I was invited/voted as committer, so whats next?
+The following is a brief summary of what to expect as committer:
+ 1. After your (Invividual Contributor Lisence Agreement ([iCLA][5]) has been
+    received and registered, you will be invited to specify one or more preferred
+    Apache user names.
+    **Important**: The e-mail address you provide in your iCLA will be used for the
+    following communications with you.
+    Please note that there is also a [Corporate Contributor Lisence Agreement
+    (CCLA)][6] if you want/have to commit in the name of a company or organization.
+ 2. Choose one or more User Names that would be acceptable to you. These are short
+    names or abbriviations that will be used for a Unix account login.
+    Example:
+    Your name is "John Doe", so an ID cound be "johnd" or "jdoe". [Here you can see
+    if the ID is still free][7] or already given to another committer.
+    Supply all other information that is requested. Return the ID requests as
+    instructed.
+ 3. When your choices are returned, the first request that does not conflict with
+    an already-issued ID will be used to generate an Apache ID. Write them in
+    the order you would like to have, so the first one is the most wanted.
+ 4. You will receive an e-mail, from "", that confirms the Apache
+    user name for you and also provides you with an initial password. There are also
+    instructions for changing your password. Please be patient as this mail can take
+    some days.
+ 5. The ID will also be your Apache e-mail address. Note that the account will be
+    set up to forward all received mails to the e-mail address you supplied on your
+    ICLA. It is not a normal mail account but just for forwarding. After you have
+    the account there is also a way to associate your Apache e-mail address with
+    additional e-mail addresses that you have. (ToDo: Add a link to a how-to)
+ 6. The ID and password will allow you to check in changes and new additions on the
+    Apache SVN repository for the incubator repository. The ability
+    to check in material on the SVN repository is important for more than code. All
+    committers will have an use for it.
+ 7. The ID and password will allow you to login to a personal Unix account on the
+    Apache server "". You can produce a personal website at this
+    account as well as use it as a regular Unix (specifically, FreeBSD) account. You
+    do not need to be able to use this account. You may find it useful as you become
+    more accomplished as a committer.  
 ### How and when to vote?
 Voting is done when a formal decision has to be made or due to legal reasons, e.g.,
 to vote in new members as committers. In any case avoid voting as the normal way is
 to come to a decision by discussions. The initiator is responsible for the vote,
 that means also to count the votes and present the result. Every member has 1 vote.
