Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] 103 Contributions pending on GitHub

In the platform project we like having this information in the wiki where it is more closely connected with the rest of our committer documentation. So in the CONTRIBUTING.md we have just been putting a simple statement with a pointer to the wiki for further details. Here is an example:

http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.ui.git/tree/CONTRIBUTING.md

If any existing eclipse project has added a CONTRIBUTING document to their git repo (master. tree root), can you speak up?
Just curious as to what text/content would be appropriate (to start with)

To clarify: we've stopped automatically creating mirrors of eclipse.org Git repositories on GitHub. The existing repositories are AFAIK still being updated periodically by some magical script that runs at GitHub.

SWTBot is running a vote to determine whether or not they're going to ask me to remove their mirror. I think that this is an outstanding idea. If you want your existing project mirrors to be removed, please sort that out with your project members and let me know (via email to
emo@xxxxxxxxxxx).

Early in the new year, I'll identify the GitHub mirrors that do not already have forks and use that list as the initial list of candidates for deletion. I'm thinking that I can push forward with these repos using lazy consensus (with at least a month of warning).

Then we need to sort out what we're going to do with the repositories that have forks. I'm thinking that I'll need more proactive input from the projects to decide what we're going to do.

Does this make sense?

Mirroring project repositories on GitHub seemed like a good idea at the time. We've stopped automatically mirroring repositories on GitHub. This is just one more good reason to stop the practice.

In the new year, I'll start the process of shutting down these repositories. If project teams aren't monitoring them, then I think that they actually provide a disservice to the community and should be removed. I need to work out a means of determining which ones need to stay and how we go about making that work.

Minimally, I think that we need to turn off the mirroring for those repositories that projects want to keep on GitHub (the mirroring process is--or at least was--broken). That means we'll have to figure out some way of making sure that this clones stay up to date.

We also have some new GitHub hooks that do things like establish and maintain project teams based on project commit rights, and ensure that CLAs are in place. Projects that clone into the Eclipse organization on GitHub should probably have these hooks installed.

Due to the nature of Git, our repositories can be replicated anywhere. It's probably a good idea to have a CONTRIBUTING file in the root of your repository so that contributors have a fighting chance of doing the right thing.

Wouldn't it be better to disable pull requests for Eclipse repository mirrors at GitHub? Or enforce usage of a hook on pull request telling to use Bugzilla & Gerrit?
