  You can also take on co-maintainers that are not yet sponsored into the packager group provided that you agree to mentor them in the ways of packaging for Fedora: teaching them both about the tools we use and the link:https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/packaging-guidelines/[packaging guidelines] they need to follow.

+ == Bot accounts

+ 

+ In the case when an automatic process is used in lieu of normal maintainer actions,

+ a separate bot account should be used.

+ The name of the account **should** end in "bot".

+ The maintainers setting up the bot **must** create a wiki page for the bot account (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:<bot>)

+ with contact information to the maintainers and an explanation of what the bot does.

+ If the updates submitted by the bot are causing problems that require immediate attention,

+ rel-eng may disable the account temporarily.

  == Track dependency issues in a timely manner

  

  In Rawhide, updates to packages may cause other packages to have broken dependencies.

Thanks! But, should this be scoped to package-maintaining bots, or made more general?

What other bot types would there be that would be covered by "Package maintainer responsibilities"?

Assuming you mean not covered, e.g. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Issuebot and for that matter https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:zodbot

Obviously some things like package updates don't apply, but other things like "create the user wiki page" and "releng (infra, whoever) can disable it if there are problems" seem general.

That said, don't let me suggesting this stop recording the specific thing to start, if it seems better to just do that.

I did mean "covered": this text is part of a document about "package maintainer responsibilities". Thus it can't really cover zodbot. But I think it makes sense to make the text more general, without constraining it just to "package updates". I reworded it, ptal.

I'll merge this without further ado. There have been no comments in the last month.
