Topic: Rust Lang GitHub Permission Changes

Hello Rust contributor,

My name is Erin, I am contacting you on behalf of the Governance WG for the Rust project. We are contacting you because you're a member of a legacy GitHub Team on rust-lang, and not a current member of any other team. We're trying to transition managing access and permissions to rust-lang/team. Eventually we intend to remove the legacy teams which could result in you losing write permissions on some repos in the rust-lang org. If you believe you still you need access please get in contact with us, by either replying to this email, or on Zulip.

Zulip: https://rust-lang.zulipchat.com/#narrow/stream/223182-wg-governance

Thank you for your time,

Erin (XAMPPRocky)

@XAMPPRocky , I don't need full write permissions to the repo, but does github allow fine-grained permissions that would still allow me to close issues on rust-lang/rust? I do use that ability with some regularity

XAMPPRocky (Feb 16 2020 at 17:57, on Zulip):

@bstrie Yes! There is the triage working group which has triage access which allows you to close issues.

bstrie (Feb 16 2020 at 18:05, on Zulip):

shall I try to convince them to let me join the team in order to receive that permission explicitly? I see they have a discord channel

XAMPPRocky (Feb 16 2020 at 18:21, on Zulip):

@bstrie Yeah, you’ve kind of already have been doing that work. I would ping @DPC (wg lead) and @simulacrum (team lead) about your situation, I don’t think anyone will have a problem.

DPC (Feb 16 2020 at 18:21, on Zulip):

Ye we don't have a problem xD

simulacrum (Feb 16 2020 at 18:27, on Zulip):

Yes, wg-triage is the place for those permissions today.

simulacrum (Feb 16 2020 at 18:27, on Zulip):

Please file a PR to the team repo.

bstrie (Feb 19 2020 at 15:10, on Zulip):

@simulacrum @DPC by "file a PR to the team repo", I assume this is what was meant? https://github.com/rust-lang/team/pull/270

DPC (Feb 19 2020 at 15:10, on Zulip):

Yep

simulacrum (Feb 19 2020 at 15:26, on Zulip):

@bstrie If you want to edit the commit to associate with GH please do so, otherwise let me know and I can merge

I've had a couple of comments on my GitHub Permission changes RFCs around also defining moderator permissions, etc. on it. Could someone give me a bit more context about what this might mean? https://github.com/rust-lang/rfcs/pull/2872#issuecomment-597956668

Nell Shamrell-Harrington (Mar 24 2020 at 22:10, on Zulip):

Are they talking about moderating comments on GitHub? Or in Discord/Zulip/etc?

Nell Shamrell-Harrington (Mar 24 2020 at 22:12, on Zulip):

I personally think it's out of the scope of this RFC, but want to make sure I understand the context

[I'll reply when I'm awake enough]
