Sheriff Duty – The Details

I meant to get to this yesterday, but yesterday turned out to be a busy day. I meant to get to this earlier today, but today turned out to be a busy day too…

As I previously announced, I’m going to try an experiment with sheriffing the tree. While I’m the acting sheriff tomorrow (that will be from 9am – 6pm EDT), you’ll have to run checkins through me. To make this easy as possible, there are going to be a number of ways in which you can get a patch to me (in the preferred order):

  • Send me an e-mail with your hg bundle that includes the correct commit message.
  • Attach your hg bundle to the bug you want pushed, and add that bug to the wiki page.
  • Just post a bug number on the wiki page with the appropriate checkin comment.

I’ll also be going through checkin-needed bugs when things are slow. The general rule here though is that it’s a first-come, first-serve push ordering. I might take things out of order if the queue is big and I see bugs/patches that won’t interfere with each other.

Hopefully that clears up any confusion about tomorrow. I apologize for not getting this out sooner, but today was crazy. :)
