Although the goal, of course, is for each the actual subprojects to own
their own spaces -- just for the Council to oversee the top level.

Exactly.  This FAS group should just control merge rights for the core Fedora Docs.  The distributed repositories we use should allow subprojects to directly decide who has commit rights to their docs/information.  The Docs team will just publish that data as written to the website (or report that we can't publish because of an error and ideally submit a PR to the original docs to fix the problem).


Reading the responses and thinking about the CI system, I think we should strongly consider moving to a PR based workflow.  This will allow the CI to do the checking for us.  Lots of people want the FAS designation in order to contribute.  Let's make it clear that anyone can contribute by leveraging the CI and the PR concept.

What do you think?


Results of Email:

The docs FAS group would be the list of people able to merge those PRs and the entirety of FAS represents the people who can submit those PRs.

I've opened a ticket with the results of the email responses.  It contains the list of people I believe the FAS group should consist of based on responses.

TICKET URL: https://pagure.io/fedora-docs/docs-fp-o/issue/71

I am SUPER MOTIVATED to see that list grow, but I am also glad to have a better feeling about who is active in our community.

I'll make these changes after the meeting today, barring changes/discussion.
