#40 closed enhancement (wontfix)

patchbot to automatically accept patches by e-mail

Reported by: zooko Owned by: somebody
Priority: minor Milestone: undecided
Component: dev-infrastructure Version:
Keywords: darcs Cc:
Launchpad Bug:


Faried Nawaz has already submitted more than one useful patch (#33 -- add private storage -- and #37 display filesize in UI), and has assigned all rights to Allmydata so that we can use his patches freely. It would be nice to give Faried direct commit access, such as by hooking up a mail bot to watch tahoe-dev@… for patches signed by Faried, containing the key phrase "dear patchbot: please apply", and automatically apply them.

  • Keywords darcs added

I think that better documentation on how to set up darcs push via ssh, would probably obviate any need for this ticket.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Nowadays we have a workflow that includes patches being attached to trac tickets (either as darcs patches or as unified diffs) before being pushed into the repository by one of the committers. This seems sufficiently convenient and wouldn't be helped by apply-patches-from-email hacks.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
