oVirt.org Access Needed

Thanks to all for the assist. Rich just sent me the how to, and apparently, I need to ssh into the actual server to pull the git repo of Bitergia's data into the web server, set up the alias in the conf file, and add a cron job to pull the git data down daily.

So, is that do-able? Or would it be easier for someone on the team to set this up?

This email is helping, sorry we didn't start with this discussion here
all together.

I've been having trouble adding other people to the admin as members
via OpenShift. There is a level of control that only people in the
admin group have, and up until about 6 or 9 months ago it could only
be one person. That was changed, but there appears to be some bug in
my ability to add people, either via the WebUI or the CLI tool. I've
asked on #openshift but haven't started a forum thread (yet.)

However, I'm not sure that level of access is what Brian needs. I did
load in his sshkey, and that should be good enough to pull down the
repo and do the changes the Bitergia app (MetricsGrimoire, right?)
need done.

Brian, I'll email you the link to grab the git repo (it may be on the
wiki, too, not sure if we're keeping that private, no real need to
beyond obscurity.)

Then you need to get the basics on committing and making changes go live.

Meanwhile, I'll continue fixing the multiple admins situation somehow. :)

Also, if needed, we can do the near-unthinkable and share the single
admin account *gasp*. I set it up as quaid at ovirt.org because there was
no other shared admin ability at that time.

We may be on the way there already, and +1 for opening the source
entirely to use project tools to get contributions and fixes. Then
committers can approve them through.
