Hello EMEA Ambassadors,
I completed the trac migration from fedorahosted to pagure.
Great! Thanks a lot for your efforts!
I have created another issue tracker for funding requests, that
set to public for the time being. This will be our primary issue tracker
for funding requests or other expenses that will be reimbursed from the
EMEA Budget. In the next meeting we have to make a decision weather or
not we want to move forward with bex's idea to have 2 issue trackers for
funding requests (one public under the EMEA group, and one private were
receipts will be uploaded at, under the fedora-budget group).
The problem is that funding requests on the one hand need to be public
(for FAmSCo or the regional IRC meeting to make decisions) but on the
other contain sensitive information (invoices, bank accounts for
reimbursements). I'm not sure if splitting this up into two separate
trackers will help. Often the sensitive information is necessary for
decision making. If someone asks for approving 500 € in one tracker,
but for reimbursement of 1000 € in the other, we have a problem.
Two trackers only make sense from Bex's or the treasurers'
perspective. But it also means more work for them, as they have to
watch twice as many tickets and make sure the numbers in one ticket
match the ones in the other.
To make things more complicated, we have the same problem with swag
tracking. In the past, ambassadors had concerns sharing information
like shipping addresses,
I think the easiest solution is to change the visibility of all 3
trackers to authenticated users only. swag_requests and trac_obsolete
already are, only funding_requests is completely public.
All of the repositories/issue trackers I mentioned can be found
the EMEA Ambassadors group in pagure. Members of this group can see
the private issue trackers, add comments to private tickets, change the
status of tickets, and many more.
Beware, everybody in the group has full admin privileges! They can not
only change all tickets but also the trackers, e.g. delete
*everything*. I think admin privileges should be reserved for certain
people, not groups. IIRC not even FAmSCo had full admin on all trac
I added some EMEA Ambassadors to the group.
It would be nice if we could manage that group directly in FAS.
By default people that are in the EMEA Ambassadors group in pagure
receive email notifications for ticket creation, new comments, status
updates in tickets, etc.
I don't think people should watch by default but to the
trackers/tickets they are interested in. The only people to watch by
* funding_requests: @famsco, regional treasurer, credit card holders
and IRC meeting chair
* swag_requests: Some person in Brno who is in charge of shipping swag.
* trac_obsolete: Nobody, it's obsolete
I'm still exploring the capabilities of pagure, so please correct
I did something wrong.
I think you did a great job, but we should tighten privileges and privacy a bit.
Thanks again for your hard work!
