> At present, we have no way for the committership to close pull requests on github. Since
sometimes users abandon requests, this has lead to an infinitely growing queue on our github
> https://github.com/apache/spark/pulls
> As a short-term solution to this, would it be possible for infra to provide (via the
private list) the Spark committership with a temporary API token that has the permission to
close pull requests? Then we can write a small script that our committers can use to close
them. You can create tokens here:
> https://github.com/settings/tokens/new
> I think this is a decent temporary solution because:
> 1. This token could have very limited permissions. The only permission would be to close
pull requests. Closing requests doesn't do anything irreversible, the user can always open
them up again.
> 2. If there are any issues, infra can immediately revoke/delete the token.
> Let me know if you would consider this. I think it's a decent solution and right now
this is becoming a bigger issue for us.
