Greetings committers:

2. INFO: Infrastructure issues in Bugzilla
3. INFO: CVS file and directory manipulation using the SSH command line
4. INFO: CVS Groups and users
5. INFO: CVS Permissions requests


1. Bugzilla: Can't set milestone when opening a bug.

As discussed in https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=118201 the ability to set the target milestone when submitting a bug has been disabled globally. This is a system-wide setting, so even if you're the King of Spain I can't change it just for you.

Committers can set the Target Milestone of a bug once it has been saved.

Of course, you're free to disagree with the entire decision and vote -1 in the above bug.



2. Infrastructure issues in Bugzilla

A number of folks open eclipse.org issues under the Eclipse Foundation/Community product. Some of these issues may impact the way you work with our infrastructure. I suggest poking around there once in a while. Of course, you can always set buguzilla to watch for webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxxx



3. CVS file and directory manipulation using the SSH command line

A word of caution when toying with your CVS repository from the command line: default access permissions are easy to break when working with the SSH command line. Commands like mkdir, rmdir and rm to manage your CVS repository should be avoided. We suggest you ask us to remove/move files and directories.



4. CVS Groups and users

A word of caution when looking at an ls -l output on the command line to determine access to CVS files. We use ACLs which don't show up using standard UNIX commands like ls. If a "+" symbol is displayed after the permissions, it's because there are ACLs.

ACL:
drwxrwsr-x+  11 someone  somegrp 48 Aug 10  2005 somedir

No ACL:
drwxrwsr-x   11 someone  somegrp 48 Aug 10  2005 somedir

Use getfacl to see ACLs.



5. CVS Permissions requests

Requesting additonal CVS permissions should come from your PMC, or from the Project Lead. Webmaster cannot grant additional permissions to CVS without their approval. Having only one bug (or e-mail) coming from the PMC or Project Lead helps expedite your request.


Thanks for reading.

Denis
