Subject Re: Access rights on Jenkins
Date Wed, 15 Apr 2015 20:00:35 GMT
As a general principle we try and minimize the access that folks have
in general to external-facing systems.
Jenkins is one of several CI platforms that the ASF makes use of, and
so it doesn't make sense to hand out access needlessly to the ~5000
committers, of which only 543 have requested access to Jenkins, and
only a small fraction of that number have used that access in the last
6 months.
Moreover, we've made this something that projects can manage
themselves (just like they have to manage access to svn/git and other
resources). So a chair could make this part of his karma granting
process to new committers if he/she so desired.
