Core Contributors to the Open edX Project

Notes on Projects and Access

  • Based on their role, Core Contributors may be granted access to various Open edX systems, such as GitHub and Transifex.

  • Some access grants are overlapping or redundant. This is intentional: Core Contributors are expected to use their different rights in the proper contexts.

    • For example, Axim On-Call grants admin rights to all repositories. When not On-Call, though, those contributors should self-limit based on the other rights they’ve been granted.

  • All repositories listed here are in the openedx GitHub organization. There are five increasing levels of GitHub repository access:

    • read access is the ability to read the code.

      • For Open edX, everyone in the world has this.

    • triage access grants read access, plus the ability to assign, label, and close issues.

      • Triage access may be granted to any Core Contributor based on need.

    • write access grants triage access, plus the ability to push branches and merge pull requests.

      • Only Code Contributors and Release Managers are granted this level or higher.

      • Requires a CLA.

    • maintain access grants write access, plus ability to modify certain repository settings.

    • admin access grants maintain access, plus ability to modify all repository settings, this will not be given to CCs by default but exceptions might be made on a case-by-case basis.

Core Contributor Groups (for Coding CCs)

For certain sets of repos we use GitHub teams to grant access to many repos at once. Core Contributor groups can be browsed on https://github.com/orgs/openedx/teams?query=committers- ; Core Committer groups start with committers- and 2U teams with 2u. If you are a maintainer of a repository and you need to know which group(s) have write access to your repo, you can file an Axim Engineering ticket and we will help you out. https://github.com/openedx/axim-engineering/issues/new/choose

To see which repositories an individual has access to, you can search by username at https://github.com/orgs/openedx/people - click the “X Teams” button to see their teams, and you can drill down to see which team grants what access.
