Just a note: FAS has no way to enforce that a sponsor in Group A is the person who adds someone to Group B. So if this policy were to start off with sponsors from cvsextras, I'd rather that the sponsors could sponsor anyone for the new group (not just people they sponsored in cvsextras).I have a topic. Casey Dahlin has been doing some good work on making https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/JesseKeating/NewMaintainerContainment a reality. We're very close. One decision that I'd like to see discussed is what we use to prime the membership of the as of yet to be named elevated rights group. One suggestion has been to grandfather all of current cvsextras into said group, however I think this would make the later initiative https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/JesseKeating/PackageACLOpening less successful. Instead I suggest priming the group with current sponsors, and allow any existing sponsor to promote the people they sponsor into the elevated group. I'm also open to further ideals or discussions on this.
I think this also maps better to the way we currently think of sponsors: they're people who are considered more knowledgable and capable of guiding other packagers' growth. They should be able to promote any other contributor not just people they've shown an interest in in the past.
I realize this is rather late notice and doesn't give a lot of time for discussion on this list, however Casey has been getting things done quicker than expected, which is a great thing.
Yeah, Casey is doing some great work this summer. -Toshio
