So @BatmanAoD (Kyle Strand) pointed out that they're not able to post updates to the issues on the lang-team

I don't quite know why that is, I don't really understand github permissions,

but presumably we could add every project group to the permissions list

view this post on Zulip nikomatsakis (Oct 08 2020 at 17:58):

so that members can post

seems reasonable to me?

I think we shouldn't do that just yet

I would like to hear more about why they think they can't post

Perhaps they wanted to edit a post rather than post an additional comment

Niko has been posting regular updates on the group's progress/status. As a group lead, I would have offered to take over this task some time ago if I had permission to comment.

That looks like the normal UI?

Er

It is entirely possible that this is a made-up problem

you're right, the button is enabled when text is entered. I'm not sure if I'm misremembering not having permission before, or if the permissions have changed.

speaking of permissions, someone should give @rfcbot the permission to manage labels on rust-lang/lang-team. https://github.com/rust-lang/lang-team/issues/58#issuecomment-705770064
