Re: Proposal to deploy GitLab on

I agree with Ray. Open ACLs is a big + for GNOME and there are no
significant evidence of abuse of that. Big NO for the artificial
barriers by fine grained ACLs

It's quite hard to get commit access atm because you have to be

is that true? I mean you have to have someone with commit access vouch for
you but that's a pretty low bar. I don't think it should be any lower than
that, but I also wouldn't want to see it higher than that.  GNOME has had
open ACLs from the beginning and it's a good thing! There's no evidence of
abuse, we shouldn't go locking everything down just because we can.

IMO, there should be three access tiers:

1) Can report issues and propose fixes
2) Can triage issues
3) Can fix issues

Anything more granular than that is a bad idea. It just introduces
artificial barriers that people will run into. (What happens when a
maintainer goes AWOL ?)

Let's keep things open like we always have!
