Thanks Daniel,

Sharing admin account with ComDev PMC makes sense.

By "delegating read/write access to the new repos" do you mean the ComDev owned admin account
will assign individual project admin rights to the relevant PMC upon request. If that's the
case then the ComDev PMC as a whole can own this responsibility. We can manage it through
JIRA, that way when Infra gets requests they can simply reassign to ComDev. It would be wonderful
if the infra contractors could help with this workload, but I see no reason why ComDev volunteers
(including me) can't help.

I've been meaning to go through the list but if my assumption above is correct I see an alternative
and less labour intensive option. Accounts that are still owned by ComDev after x months (I
suggest a minimum of 12 months) will be examined and if appropriate closed.

It would be great if you, as part of your migration process, will handle the notifications
to PMCs to ensure they are aware of this. I'd suggest one email saying "we will do this, you
will need to open a ComDev ticket to ensure you get admin access promptly". Followed by a,
"we are doing it now" and a final "it's done, all further enquiries to ComDev".

Subject: Moving Apache Extras

Hiya folks,

I'm the "lucky person" in charge of moving the some 350 projects from Google Code to SourceForge.
This will happen over the course of next week, save some freak accident occurs, however, SourceForge
is not Google Code, and as such, there are a few things we need to consider:

- I will create an admin account that will initially own all the imported projects. This can/will
be shared with the ComDev PMC.
- Someone (not me!!) will have to step up and help out with delegating read/write access to
the new repos on SourceForge.
- Preferably, someone will have to go through the giant list of projects, and select those
we'll import. This is not strictly necessary, but if someone volunteers for this, that'd be
super duper.

The most important thing is that we are able to delegate write access to the devs (and do
so!), so this does not simply become a big data dump that just sits there. If any of you are
interested in taking on that task (preferably more than one person), please do speak up :)

With regards,
Daniel.
