I’m up for sheriff duty this Thursday, and I thought I might try something that people have discussed many times. It’s a bit radical, and I’m not sure if people will like it though. The idea is to only have the sheriff push changesets. This way, the sheriff can push things at a rate he/she is comfortable with, and stay on top of all the performance charts and random oranges. If it happens to be a slow day, I’ll be going through the checkin-needed bugs and pushing those as well.
It makes sheriffing a full time job, but I think it’s worth a try to see how it works out. I also think it will be a valuable data point to determine if we want to do it like this all the time.
Feedback wanted (posting to dev.planning as well)!
