We could rotate the job. ;) Whoever has the time is assigned to do it for a month and then it is passed to the next in the active-chain. Is someone used to the Signed-Off-By system and knows how it works? Maybe we could use that to assist QA a bit. Or get users to mark problematic revisions/repositories. (What I currently think about is, when Joe User experiences unexpected crashes in devurandom's repository, he marks it with a comment. Far from ideal and just a sketchup, but you get the idea.) What Gerard and I thought about was an even simpler system though: Let people dynamically decide where to fetch from. If they find my repository to be most stable and up-to-date (I doubt it...), they will fetch from me. If they think Per's is better, they will use his. For releases we will appoint a release maintainer, who will receive merge requests and prepare an official version. So while things based on master are pretty loose, you have one person/repository responsible for any release branch. That's exactly one place to send people to. I'd like to see your comments. --DevUrandom
