Two repos mean twice the administration; not sure that's the best approach to start out with. I poked around Github settings a bit. The permission controls are very limited (maybe granular settings are available in the paid version), but the following might fit most of your model: - one Github site - only a single owner permitted - Wiki with editing permitted to any logged in Github user (your scratch/development area) - collaborators by individual Github name appear to have push/write access to full repo - Code section could contain the more formal contents, would have to be a collaborator to contribute directly or approve submissions - unclear on how documents would migrate from here to qubes-doc unless as a copy/paste, but that would lose attribution and I imagine most would like their own name on their commit! Can any Github pros confirm/deny/provide additional detail? -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
