We don't have an automated process for showing people the rest of
pages with packager information either. If we added the information to this
after step #9, 'Request updates for Fedora release branches, if necessary,
using "fedpkg update" or another Bodhi interface as detailed in Bodhi
would that be sufficient? It would be the same amount of information as the
rest of the package process gets.
Note that the lack of a link to the proventester information on that page is
probably another reason that people (new people at least) don't know that
they should join proventester.
That doesn't feel like the right place to me; those steps are going
through a specific process, the package review process, and reading
proventester instructions isn't a part of that at all. It'd feel very
jarring, to me, to have it stuck into those steps.
I think it'd probably fit better in the preamble before step 1. Perhaps
after the paragraph 'As a Contributor, you should...' we add a paragraph
explaining that as a packager you will automatically be given
proventester privileges, a short explanation of the proventester
concept, and a link out to the proventester page requesting that you
read those instructions.
Also, what do we do with existing packagers? Send a mail out to
devel-announce announcing that everyone gets to be a proventester and
requesting everyone read the instructions? Future proventester
announcements to be CCed to devel-announce?
