This is actually a topic that has come up a few times. A good number of previously core packages still have default locked down ACLs. This was somewhat mandated by the general populace of core maintainers. However I think that the trial period is over and I hope that the Fedora maintainers at large have proved to be responsible about what they do, so that all maintainers should feel confident in opened packages. I still want there to be an ACL system for when a maintainer strongly feels that his/her package should be kept to a small commit list. However the vast majority would be just fine open, and would promote more of a help you neighbor attitude if ACLs weren't in the way. So I'd like to discuss the idea of having an automated "opening" of all ACLs that a maintainer can opt /out/ of should they choose. Some methodology of tagging each package that should be opened and allowing some time for a maintainer to "untag" the package as it were to opt out of opening it. I'm bouncing this back over to fedora-devel-list as that's where something like this should be brought up. Thoughts? -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
