Devs (and TUs, someone link this to them please),
We should be up and running now with a page that is 100% usable for
our current purposes. PLEASE give it a shot, without diving in this
will not gain steam and be used like it wasn't for 3 years.
* a package signoff can be marked as either 'known bad' or 'not
enabled'. These are distinct boolean options, setting either of them
will not allow signoffs.
* signoffs can be revoked.
* daily summary email on a per-testing-repo basis (preview coming soon)
* packager/maintainer notes for a given package in a testing repo that
are displayed with the signoff (see pacman on the page right now)
you're silly, it is 2011, not 1994), and page never needs refreshing
when doing multiple signoffs
Two more questions/comments:
1. Dev/TU distinction- should anyone in either group be allowed to
sign off on any package?
- pros: simpler, we trust each other anyway, you can see exactly who
signs off on what anyway so you aren't just relying on a magic 'Yes'
to show up.
- cons: not sure? "security"? or the fact that in the past we
generally haven't crossed this boundary.
2. User signoffs- not even worried about this yet. Let the old
solution work for now, which is sending an email to arch-general.
