I hereby nominate Alexander Matveev [1] to OpenJFX Committer.

Alexander was an initial member of JavaFX team at Oracle when the 
OpenJFX project was created, and was on the initial list of approved 
committers [2]. His status as OpenJFX committer was not recorded at that 
time on the Census. This CVF is intended to correct this oversight.

Alexander's changes prior to JavaFX becoming open-source were 
significant (which is why he was on the initial list of committers). In 
particular, Alexander, along with the rest of the media team, 
contributed much of the code that went into the open-source changeset 
that Kirill Kirichenko pushed for OpenJFX in the JDK 8 release:

    hg log -r aee256fde55

Counting his contribution to that changeset, Alexander now also has the 
requisite number of changes in the open-source repo to become a committer.

    hg log -M -u "matvee"

Votes are due by September 10, 2015.

Only current OpenJFX Committers [3] are eligible to vote on this 
nomination. Votes must be cast in the open by replying to this mailing list.

For Lazy Consensus voting instructions, see [4]. Nomination to a project 
Committer is described in [5].
