I have some comments about ongoing repository maintenance.
In an ideal environment, there should be one branch and one trunk.
The branch is made at the time of release, and *only* bug-fixes are
applied to it. The trunk is where new features are added, and bug-
fixes that are applied to the branch are merged in.
It seems to me that George should be in charge of the trunk, and that
Jonas and Brian in charge of the branch. This is kind of the way it
works right now, if you look at devlab as being the branch and
nitroproject.org as the trunk.
However, the issue we run into is that George is too busy to
regularly merge changes from the branch into the trunk. If Brian and
Jonas also had access to the trunk and the responsibility to merge
changes (i.e. bug-fixes) in from the branch, this would solve the
I get the impression that it's not easy/possible to allow someone
other than George access to nitroproject.org. Is this the case? Is
there some way around this? Granting Jonas and Brian access to
nitroproject.org would mean that they would be able to approve bug-
fixes from the community at large to go into the branch, helping to
keep Nitro stable.
Ideally, this would lead to all three of you being able to approve
enhancements and features to go into the trunk. And it would make
much easier for the rest of the world to be able to get involved in
