#7456 erlang group in src.fpo
Opened 9 months ago by bowlofeggs. Modified 4 months ago

  • Describe what you need us to do:
    Greetings! We in the Erlang SIG would like to be able to give SIG members ACLs on our Erlang packages. We have a FAS group called erlang, but I don't seem to be able to select it in Pagure at src.fedoraproject.org in order to grant SIG members access to my Erlang packages. Does someone need to add a mapping from FAS group to Pagure group for us?

  • When do you need this? (YYYY/MM/DD)
    No rush.

  • When is this no longer needed or useful? (YYYY/MM/DD)
    If we stop doing Erlang.

  • If we cannot complete your request, what is the impact?
    We'll have to go on the way we do now.

The existing erlang group is the wrong type for this currently.

@pingou do you see any issue with changing it's type in fas and using it as a pkgdb group?

@kevin I don't foresee any, we should be able to create it in dist-git and let the memberships sync. We may not even need to change anything in FAS :)

Note: pagure-admin new-group should make our life simpler wrt creating groups on dist-git :)

ok. I made the group on the pagure side. @bowlofeggs you will need to logout and back on to pick up the group membership.

I think if you add the group to commit it should allow folks in the group to commit.

Let us know if you have any issues.

It looks like the group is called erlang-sig, but the FAS group I think is just called erlang. It looks like nobody is in erlang-sig:


Should I just create an erlang-sig group in FAS, or should we just name the group erlang in src.fpo?

Should I just create an erlang-sig group in FAS, or should we just name the group erlang in src.fpo?

Historically, we've used -sig for groups name, it makes it obvious that it is a group (user aren't allowed to use - in their name), so I'd vote for creating the erlang-sig group in FAS (it also makes it consistent with the other groups).

sadly we cannot create the group in fas, because it's already used by a username.

I don't know that we can convert it into a group without deleting it somehow... but in any case database accesss level stuff. ;(

For now let me just remove the group and we can figure out what to do.
