Thread: How to request adding a repository to a project? (if not a maintainer)

    Default How to request adding a repository to a project? (if not a maintainer)

    hi,
    in a project (here: Archiving:Backup) i have no rights to change the repositories. Ok.
    (i was contacted using the "Comment" function of the GUI, but i am no maintainer of "Archiving:Backup" - i only maintain one project in it)

    so me - or the user - have to request this.

    as i walk through the obs web gui (-> Repositories for Archiving:Backup), i found the "Request Delete Repository" buttons, but no "Request Add Repository" buttons. uhm.. Ok.

    searching/reading in the wiki i found a osc command to add edit the repositories, but i need maintainer rights to do so, found no "request" option...
    => osc meta -e prj "Archiving:Backup"
    ... even if it is possible by the command line, i miss it in the GUI. i expect inexperienced users to use the web GUI.

    So how to do it / did i miss the obvious way to do it using the GUI?
    Best regards,
    Bernd

    I do not understand what you mean. Archiving:Backup is a project. Do you mean you maintain subproject? In this case you should be able to add repositories there.

    => osc meta -e prj "Archiving:Backup"
    ... even if it is possible by the command line, i miss it in the GUI.
    Meta tab on project page allows you to edit it.

    Otherwise you could contact project maintainers and ask for additional repository. If you do not get answer in some reasonable amount of time you could to factory list.

    As for adding features to GUI you need to open issue on OBS github. Better of course would be pull request

    Yes, "subproject" is correct.
    The request was for "Archiving:Backup" to add the 15.4 repo, but i am maintainer of a subproject only; unable to add a repo to "Archiving:Backup".

    i will contact the project "Archiving:Backup" maintainers to add the 15.4 repository.

    Thanks for your quick answer!

    i will also take a look at OBS github...
