Re: [p2-dev] Committing on behalf of a customer

Couldn't Pascal just register his pascal@xxxxxxxx address in bugzilla and use that username/e-mail as the author, but continue to use his own personal committer/e-mail address as the committer.  What is really important here is the author contribution recognition, not the actual committer that reviewed and released the contribution.  Right?

There's a wrinkle that I just thought of...

The Git server will only allow commits made with your committer email address. You'll have to change that in order be able to commit anything.

In any case, you'll have to inform the IP team of your change in employment status.

Moving forward, I think we can do a much better job of this for projects using Git. I believe that we can update our database to track multiple affiliations, each with some number of associated email addresses. I'll move this discussion to Bug 227450.

    Just commit with your ericsson.com email address in the commit field. I'll make sure that address is connected with your committer account.

    I'm working on some changes to dash to properly attribute commits. I hopeful that we'll be able to get this implemented this fall.

    Do not create a separate committer account.

    Hi,

     

    For the next little while, Iâm going to do some p2 work on behalf of Ericsson.

    As part of the work agreement, it has been decided that all my Ericsson funded work should be directly attributable to them and the attribution should stick (not change as I change affiliation). To overcome these limitations and still benefit from the fact of being a committer, Iâve opened bug 387009 [1] to discuss solutions but I have not seen any response from the foundation and I doubt that any of these could be implemented promptly (probably needs approval from the board).

     

    Since I will soon need to start committing code, do you think we could elect Pascal Rapicault (from Ericsson) to be a committer?

     

    Pascal
