Re: Making lp:ubuntu-manul commit access moderated


Like the others, I don't think it would be prudent to restrict access.
We can always recover previous revisions, and we also have people
reviewing the submissions as they come in (in some fashion or another). 

The main recommendation that I have is to make sure you "pull" before
you "push", that way you're working off of the latest revision (even
though it shouldn't affect your specific work).

Also at the end of the day, we do have the groups you suggested, in the
form of the editors. They review the source, and either correct or push
it back to the authors, if there's a problem.  I think that having a
restricted group of committers would actually decrease efficiency, and
would make it harder for us to publish alongside the actual releases.
Because you would have a small group of people who would be responsible
for going through each submission and pushing it to the branch.

Just my .02 worth from the cheap seats, so to speak.

Have a great day.:)
