Did we let this drop? Or, just rest
a while? I'll take it upon myself to talk to Denis and come back with a
Well, these guys are
very active testers who help a lot for the QA side of PDT 2.0 / PDT
I asked Denis Roy
specifically if there is a chance to give them permissions to Bugzilla
(as testers) and he said no, you should nominate them as committers and
give them permissions to Bugzilla only.
I missed this on first reading. Sounds
like Denis was just suggesting the steps to follow to get "bugzilla
committer rights" but without being a committer in the normal sense of
the word. When the repository information was requested it'd be left
blank or "bugzilla only" written in. And, in IP Logs, these "bugzilla
committers" should not show up, since while they may have added to the
quality of the project, they wouldn't have contributed Intellectual
Property. In other words, sounds like we would have two camps of
committers, with slightly different rules and implications ... and it'd
sure make the infrastructure easier if the process was about the same.
So, I can imagine several outcomes ...
some short term, some long term.
Please direct me what
to do ...
In the short term, keep a flexible,
open mind :)
I know on some projects I've worked
on, people that wanted to verify or move bugs or assign priorities,
etc., (which only committers can do) would simply write the information
in bug entry, and route it to a committer to mark or correct in the
tools-pmc mailing list
