As more people get involved with packaging OpenStack in Fedora/EPEL, I
think we need to figure out how to co-ordinate ourselves better. I had
hoped we could use the cloud SIG mailing list for this but, in practice,
I think folks are reluctant to spam everyone on the list with the nitty
gritty details of what they're working on.
I'm always reluctant to start another mailing list, but I think it might
be warranted here. What say you to openstack(a)lists.fp.org or even
openstack-maint(a)lists.fp.org? Maybe #fedora-openstack on Freenode too?
Ok, consensus seems to be to stick with the cloud SIG mailing list.
Perhaps everyone can make a concious effort to keep the list more up to
date with what they're working on?
On a related note, I've been quick to approve requests for
permissions on these packages in order to encourage folks to get
involved. However, quite a few folks have ever used these permissions so
I'm starting to think we should get require folks to have an actual
contribution ready to commit before approving these requests.
I think David's point about established packagers makes sense.
So, we'll say that it's fine to liberally grant commit to established
packagers, but we (I) should be a bit more cautious and only grant it to
new packagers when they have a contribution they want to push.
