If you believe that you have justifiable reason for not allowing this select group of people to commit to your packages, then please file a ticket and state the reasons.
This applies to all the lvm-team packages:
- They are complex packages that form a critical part of booting many people's systems and changes should not be undertaken lightly as mistakes can have wide implications (including causing data corruption or security problems). Substantive changes to the code included within the packages are assessed within the team prior to the changes being applied.
- Irrespective of item (1), there are already sufficient people in lvm-team across various time-zones to manage the packages and to deal with patches, urgent or otherwise, so permitting the 'provenpackager' group would bring no benefits, but would only increase the risk of someone inexperienced with one of the packages causing a serious problem for lvm-team members to fix. All changes should be proposed via the proper channels - either Fedora bugzilla or upstream mailing lists.
It is my firm view that minimising the risk of problems requires that people who believe they need direct commit access to any of these packages be assessed on an individual basis by the lvm-team - independently of any 'provenpackager' assessment - so the scope of the changes they are making and any relevant processes they should follow can be discussed and agreed with them. The existing pkgdb process is quite sufficient for this.
