Description Gerald Pfeifer freebsd_committer 2021-10-23 17:35:20 UTC
https://docs.freebsd.org/en/articles/committers-guide/#commit-log-message
is pretty nice.

Just one aspect that is missing is the case for Approved by when the
committer is not the maintainer of a port in question.

This is the case when the maintainer is not a committer (and a committer
pushes on their behalf) or when a committer does work on a port maintained
by another committer.
