  • Thread-topic: [websocket-dev] [External] : Re: Removing restrictions on direct commits

I saw 3 emails from people saying that they want to keep PRs requirements. I did not see any that supported your wish to remove them. Yet, you step ahead.

Social requirements are not enough, since direct push-force to master can be a very dangerous thing, and hard to trace the origin. I expressed what I think about it already.
Your idea of good faith is not good enough; everyone can make a mistake and the PRs are to eliminate them.

Now I have admin access it appears that if PRs are required then so are
reviews. We can't require PRs without the review. Therefore I am going
to remove the PR requirement.

The social requirement that substantive changes must be via PR and must
allow time for community review remains.

I'll try and make all my changes via PR but a few trivial fixes may end
up going directly to master.
