(Dennis Schubert) #10

Proposal: Add Jonne as GitHub-Org admin

Currently, Sean and I are the only available admins of the GitHub org. It would not harm if we have another admin who is more involved in the projects development, for example to create repositories for needed Gems and stuff.


Outcome: Add Jonne.

(Jason Robinson) #11

A bit of a long time for the vote? :slight_smile:


(Sean Tilley) #12

Let’s just close this vote, there’s no sense in waiting around. :slight_smile:


(Dennis Schubert) #13

there’s no sense in waiting around.

3 of 10 members is not a very good rate. But if you say so…


(Dennis Schubert) #14

Oh, and apparently @florianstaudacher got added, too. Fine for me, but this is not how it should work, @seantilleycommunit.


(raven24) #15

I don’t have a problem with it, if it’s fine by all of you.
We can also make a retroactive vote, if we want to formally acknowledge it :slight_smile:

(Steffen van Bergerem) #18

I appreciate that Fla has done a lot of valuable work for the project. However there are also pull requests like #5391 where Fla said multiple times that the PR is ready to merge while there were still some unaddressed issues each time that were mentioned before in the comments. Everyone makes mistakes but this behavior gives me the impression that Fla is not careful enough so right now I don’t think I can agree with this proposal which would give him commit rights. Please note that this opinion is not permanent.


(Jonne Haß) #19

I fear I have to agree with Steffen.

Adding to his points, my main problem is a certain over-enthusiasm, which I do generally see as a positive aspect of personalty, but when it comes to directly affecting the software in use of thousands of users that are not capable of understanding its development in full and in all aspects, I don’t think it’s at the right place.

Fla, I hope you don’t take this too personal, it’s not that we don’t like you or don’t value your contributions, we do tremendously, and we do hope that you continue them. And if this would be smaller project, I would have a different opinion, but I do feel your development style is just not quite there yet :slight_smile:


(Dennis Schubert) #20

I have to agree with the raised points. However, I think this will improve over time, so I suggest proposing core access again next year. :slight_smile:
