To follow these directions, you need:
- Access to commit to cvs.fedoraproject.org:/cvs/docs/owners
- Commit to /cvs/docs is gained through being part of the 'docs' group
- Make sure you have the latest updates:
cvs up -d
owners.listin a text editor
- The components are stored in English alphabetical order by component name; inser the new component in the appropriate location
- Component names should be more specific than generic. For example, 'fedora-guide' is too generic, where 'fedora-user-guide' is nicely specific.
- The entry follows the format of:
productis 'Fedora Documentation'
componentis e.g. 'fedora-user-guide'
descriptionis a short, one sentence description of the document
initialowneris the bugzilla account name of the person who is assigned ownership of new bugs by default; this can only be one account
initialqacontactis the bugzilla account name of the person who is assigned QA of new bugs by default; this can only be one account
initialcclistis a comma-separated list of bugzilla accounts who are put in the Cc: field of new bugs by default
- When the new line is complete, save the
owners.listwith an appropriate comment with details and pointers to relevant request tracking, etc.:
cvs ci -m "Adding new component for first arrival of Fedora User Guide, \
ref. http://fedorahosted.org/user-guide/ticket/17" owners.list
- Components are created automatically via a
cronjob, usually within sixty minutes.
- If you have any problems, either ask questions on
#fedora-adminor file a bug in bugzilla against the Fedora product, 'bugzilla' component.
