So the firstname.lastname removal has been done and went fairly well
with one exception. Many of the ambassadors use firstname.lastname when
dealing with other people. They like a good, professional looking email
address. Unfortunately, not everyone thinks of this when they're
creating their account name and trying to be an ambassador with
fluffyone23(a)fedoraproject.org may cause issues.
I've added a few exceptions but I really don't want our group
maintaining this list. We're not in the business of user
administration, that always gets delegated to the specific group
owners/admins. This puts us in an awkward position because of the
sensitive nature of the alises file we can't just let everyone edit this
file. Here's what I'd like to propose:
Thomas Chung has offered to maintain this list for the ambassadors.
Since its a manual intervention we're not as open to attack/collisions
as we were when it was automated. We'll continue to use CVS so we get
notifications when a change goes out. Additionally I've given the
following guidelines to Thomas should we chose to go this route:
* All alises for the ambassadors must be firstname.lastname(a)fp.o
* Exceptions are made by Thomas Chung for the ambassadors only. He has
the final say as to whether someone is eligible for the alias
* Careful precautions must be made to not cause collisions. (This would
include looking out for suspicious aliases like
Does anyone have any issues / concerns with this?
