#1612 Provenpackager request jforbes
Closed None Opened 2 years ago by jforbes.

As someone who has been a packager on a variety of package types, as well as one of the few with signing privs for secureboot builds, it would be handy for me to have provenpackager so that I can do builds or emergency fixes as necessary for signed packages. I am fully aware of the implications of this kind of access, and respect what that means.

Thanks,
Justin


-1 from me. POC/co-maintainer of only 9 packages (even if one of them is the kernel) and I cannot find any reviews done by you. You don't seem to have much presence on the devel mailing list, either. It's possible that your Fedora contributions are done under a different name and I missed those, so please correct me if I'm wrong and I'll be happy to change my vote.

Contributions have always been under my name. You are right, I only co-maintain kernel and virt packages, they generate enough bug mail. As a point, I like to not interfere with other people's packages unless there is a specific need (such as the one in pesign that prompted this request, there wasn't a provenpackager or maintainer available with permissions to do signed builds at the time). Typically fixes are something that are discussed in bugzilla or upstream lists, and often not critical enough that they cannot wait on the maintainer to handle. While I read Fedora-devel, I don't start new threads often unless there is something I need to discuss or announce about the kernel.
As for packaging experience outside of the 9 tiny packages I co-maintain, I had my hands all over the tree when doing the x86_64 port ( http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-announce-list/2004-March/msg00011.html ) and for a few years was the co-packager/maintainer of the entire rPath linux and Foresight distributions. Other than that few years in the middle, which ended 7 years ago, I have been active in Fedora from the beginning.

I'm +1 to this.

It's been a week and we have a single -1. We should discuss this at the meeting today.

Just checked with zodbot and I can see jforbes is now provenpackager :)
