#23 Package maintainers happy to help with maintaining docs
Opened a year ago by ankursinha. Modified 8 months ago

Just a ticket where folks that would like to help maintain the docs can let the current admins know.

I guess the requirement here for commit rights is that one should be a package maintainer?

I'm happy to help. I'm a package maintainer (and sponsor + proven packager).

PS: would it be easier to create a package maintainers pagure group that has admin/commit rights here and just add folks there (instead of adding them here individually)? That'll also for example allow us to sync package maintainers from FAS to the group here if we want to go down that path in the future.

Thank you Ankur!
I added you as an admin.

There is already the group package-maintainer-docs with commit rights.
I added you there as well.

I did not give the group admin rights, only commit,
because it did not feel right to dish out admin privileges
as easily as admission to that group is intended to happen.
I am not sure if that is a necessary distinction,
perhaps even administration could be done in a shared manner.

That is also the threshold I imagined.
It is a bit stricter than in wiki,
where you had to be in a FAS group,
not necessarily in the packager FAS group.

Yeh, I guess with the wiki folks automatically received "commit rights" but here they need to be given rights explicitly. I guess we can keep the requirements really lenient here---when folks open PRs we can just add them to the group too. That's probably the closest we can come to the automatic permission system in the wiki?

@jjames : thanks very much for the PR, may we add you to the list of folks who have commit rights to the repo?

Yes, please. Thank you.

Done, thanks very much :)
