Good news! We just finished our meeting where we discussed the outcome of the hackathon. We decided that we want to continue with IcedTea-Web.
Next week, we will start to create clean PR for the main repository. But as we already discussed this will not work in the long run, therefore we need commit-rights rather sooner than later. We will start with two engineers and later a third one will join. What is the process to get commit rights?
Our suggestion is that all changes have to go through a PR and need at least one approval before they can be merged. What do you think? Do you have the rights to set this up in GitHub?
