Nobody can adopt a package!
@jaromil invited people to claim packages by opening an issue in the packages-base issue tracker. But one cannot open an issue there!
I created a wiki page to help, but it requires developer access in the project to be edited.
Let's fix permissions to enable willing people to participate!
https://git.devuan.org/help/permissions/permissions according to this page, a guest should be able to open an issue on a project except for private projects.
Can you better explain where are you or anyone else is trying to open issues without success in doing that?
There are two distinct problems:
- https://git.devuan.org/groups/packages-base/issues exists, but there's no way to add an issue there, so people cannot claim packages. Note that it belongs to a group and not a project within that group (which is not covered by the permissions help).
belongs to the
devuan-projectproject: only developers in (any) project can edit the wiki. Therefore people should first become developer, and then be able to claim a package using this method.
- no one can add issues on https://git.devuan.org/groups/packages-base/issues , even an admin can't do that. It's only a report page of all issues opened in the packages-base group. Who want to open an issue on a package in the packages-base group to adopt it, needs to do that in the issue tracker specific to the package, like, for example, https://git.devuan.org/packages-base/xfce4-session/issues and then the issue will be visible also on https://git.devuan.org/groups/packages-base/issue
2.sadly there is no way to open up to non-developers to write on the wiki without open up whole gitlab to guests, the only solution is to add members to the project as developers one by one
Can we settle on opening an issue here so that interested people can request developer access to the
I'd rather create a new project for that:
devuan-maintainerswhere issues can be open by members that are not developers yet, to apply for access on
packages-base. Thanks for thinkering about this!
