Actually it was covered in
... under "Developers/Contributors":

We also wish to see the title of developer, changed to the more
inclusive title of contributor. Not every person who currently
contributes to the project are php gurus - but they still make valuable
contributions to the project. We would like to see the current "how to
become a developer" document amended to spell out the criteria for being
a contributor for each area of the project. All contributors would be
expected to:

    * be available and contactable
    * maintain their area of the project
    * assist others in maintaining their area of the project - within
their abilities

We propose that for the first 3 months of a contributor being added to
the project that they will be on a "probation period", during which time
they can participate in discussions, commit to CVS (if needed) but do
not have voting rights. The probation period is to protect the project
from being stacked by those who wish to take over, and to give the new
contributors time to become familar with the way the project operates.

After 1 months of un notified inactivity a contributor would lose their
voting rights, and have to serve a 3 months probabation period on return
or after 3 months of inactivity they would
lose the title of contributor.
