1 CVS Development Policies
2
3This file, DEVEL-CVS, contains the policies by which the CVS
4development group operates. Also see the HACKING file.
5
6----------------------------------------------------------------------
7Policies regarding the CVS source repository:
8
9By checking items into the repository, developers agree to permit
10distribution of such items under the terms of the GNU Public License.
11
12----------------------------------------------------------------------
13Procedure for dealing with people who want to be developers:
14
15People who want checkin access are first requested to send
16patches and have them reviewed by a developer. If they submit some
17good ones (preferably over a period of time, to demonstrate sustained
18interest), then one of the developers can ask the other CVS
19developers, usually via the bug-cvs@nongnu.org mailing list, whether it
20is OK to make this person a developer (after first sending the
21prospective developer a copy of this file and then having the
22prospective developer say they want to be a developer). If there are
23no objections, the person will be made a developer.
24
25----------------------------------------------------------------------
26Policy regarding checkout-only access:
27
28Checkout-only access to the CVS repository is available to all, on an
29anonymous basis (no need for registration or other complications).
30The exact technical mechanisms by which it is available are not
31covered by this policy.
