It's not a set of data I'd like to keep forever. We're requesting people's non-public email addresses from GitHub to do the migration, not to implement arbitrary other features on top of that data. > At some point (rather sooner than later) we'll have to start adding > GitHub usernames to Portfiles (we might have to extend the base to > properly support that). I agree, especially because the GitHub username is now also valid in Trac. At the moment, you'd get new tickets sent to your email address, not your Trac account (unless a user notices the equivalence in the auto-completion box). > And quite honestly I would also be in favour of asking committers to > use the same MacPorts handle as their GitHub account name (and only > keep the old ones as aliases). I like my handle, but I can see how it could lead to confusion. On the other hand, the maintainer handles are bound to become less important in the future anyway. If you want to reach a committer, there usually are contact methods on their GitHub profile. -- Clemens _______________________________________________ macports-dev mailing list email@example.com https://lists.macosforge.org/mailman/listinfo/macports-dev
