Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-8402) Allow JIRAs to be assigned to people in the developers group in Spark
Date Fri, 03 Oct 2014 18:41:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-8402?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14158333#comment-14158333

Patrick Wendell commented on INFRA-8402:

@gavin - we have a handful of tickets related to this. The underlying issue is that we'd ideally
like to have a custom permissions scheme. We have a very active JIRA with many contributors,
so hopefully this is do-able.

Just to minimize the work on infra side, would it be more helpful if we consolidated all of
these into one scheme and just explained how we would want it to work? IIRC there are a bunch
of different permissions you can tweak within each scheme.

> Spark project has several groups (https://issues.apache.org/jira/plugins/servlet/project-config/SPARK/roles):
> 1. committers
> 2. contributors
> 3. developers
> We added many people to the contributors group in order to assign JIRAs to them. However,
this group can also do the following:
> 1. Modify "fixed versions" and other fields.
> 2. Assign a JIRA to themselves by clicking "Start Progress".
> We want to have a group, e.g., developers, who in the group can be assigned to JIRAs.
But they cannot modify fields like "fixed versions" and find a way to get JIRA assigned to
themselves. This is important for project management and it helps reduce duplicate efforts.
> Basically, we want the "assignee" field to accept people from the "developers" group
and then we can move some contributors to developers. This provides an alternative solution
to INFRA-8365.
