Just a quick FYI, I’ve created a team on the PyPA Github called “gardeners”, aka
@pypa/gardeners. I went through all of the repositories under the PyPA org and I’ve added permissions to this team for dealing with triaging, using the new GitHub triage permissions (can only modify issues and PRs, not touch code).
The idea here is that we can create a team of people who have the particular skill set of going through and tending to the issues (e.g. gardening!) and give them broad mandate to apply that across all of the PyPA. This might mean tagging issues as beginner, helping to direct people to the correct repositories if they’re filing it in the wrong place, or even just helping with organization.
Currently @sumanah is the only person I’ve granted this permission to, however I think that if anyone in particular is interested in having this role, they should go ahead and speak up, or if people know others that would fit well within this role talk to them and let’s see if they want it.
If any project wants to explicitly opt out of this team have triage permissions (again, can only affect issues and PRs, not code) feel free to comment either here, or me privately and we can drop the permissions on your repository.
