Re: Fedora Account System Changes

Thanks for both replies.

This is a bit confusing.  At the moment cvsextras gives access to the
externally available cvs repository.  The cvs repository for Core is
internal to Red Hat and doesn't have an equivalent "cvscore" group in
the Fedora Account System.


I believe that warren is planning to rename the cvsextras group to
"packagers" or another name which can apply to everyone in the new
merged repository world.

This sounds much more sane.

No one should be added directly to cla_done anymore.  cla_done will be
automatically added when you are approved for one of the other cla_*
groups.  For people going through the signing of the Fedora Individual
CLA, you are added to both cla_fedora and cla_done when the signed cla
is processed by the automated system.   For people signing up through
cla_redhat, the steps are to
1) Add yourself to cla_redhat.
2) The administrator of cla_redhat approves you
3) This approval automatically adds you to cla_done as well.

(Looking at the account system, it looks like your cla_redhat request
was approved and you are now a member of both cla_redhat and cla_done).

Thanks for clarifying the workflow.

Indeed, it looks like I just had to type in "cla_redhat" in the "Add new membership" box, and the right people did everything else.


What's the master list of groups that a new account owner should have if they were a maintainer of a core package in the old fedora system?

cla_fedora OR cla_redhat OR cla_dell (which grants cla_done)

cvsextras (will be renamed shortly)

This is necessary documentation for the process and should be on


1) Karsten Wade, Warren Togami, and Mairin Duffy are spearheading
documentation changes that will better explain what a new account owner
needs to do to become involved with a specific group.  For a package
maintainer, there will be a page which clearly documents what groups you
need to sign up for in order to work on your packages.


2) Mike Mcgrath is working on rewriting the UI for the account system to
be more intuitive, better organized, and altogether make it easier to
navigate the account system and figure out what groups are available and
how to become a part of them.


Thanks for the info!
