Subject Re: Governance of the Jenkins whitelist

Hey Andrew,

The list of admins is maintained by the Amplab as part of their
donation of this infrastructure. The reason why we need to have admins
is that the pull request builder will fetch and then execute arbitrary
user code, so we need to do a security audit before we can approve
testing new patches. Over time when we get to know users we usually
whitelist them so they can test whatever they want.

I can see offline if the Amplab would be open to adding you as an
admin. I think we've added people over time who are very involved in
the community. Just wanted to send this e-mail so people understand
how it works.
