Re: [4diac-dev] Explorative prototypes for 4diac


Sure, also non-committers should have this possibility if they find a sponsor/mentor committer, but still the committer would take the responsibility for maintenance in the end. That was more or less included in my mind 😊

Hi Martin,

I like this proposal a lot. This would give us more freedom to explore new ideas.

I would like to expand your proposal to allow also such feature branches for non committers. however in this case the potential contributor needs to find a committer supporting the idea and creating the feature branch for the contributor.

What do you think?

Therefore I would like to propose, that if such a prototype shall be made public available, committers should be able and allowed to publish separate feature branches, marking them with their CommiterName and taking full responsibility for maintaining the branch.
