[] [Bug 285074] New: Build User IDs should have Commit Rights to Projects  
Product/Component: Community / Architecture Council
           Summary: Build User IDs should have Commit Rights to Projects
           Product: Community
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Architecture Council
        ReportedBy: d_a_carver@xxxxxxxxx

The user ids that are using by Eclipse to check out and build code, do not
allow one of the best practices from a Continuous Integration standpoint to
occur.   The HudsonBuilder id does not have write access rights to the
repositories that it checks code out from.   This makes it impossible for
Hudson to Tag the builds either pre-build or post build.

The same is true for when using Cruisecontrol, or other continuous integration
servers.   While I realise that there is a legacy build process in place, I
think in general from a release engineering standpoint we need to revisit why
we don't allow write access rights by the build machine user id.   It is
causing unnecessary hoop jumping to have to occur by the various build

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #264713 +++

We should tag SVN each time we do a build so that it's reproducible.  This will
also alleviate our rather hairy release engineering procedures.
