GitConsensus

This simple project allows github projects to be automated. It uses "reaction" as a voting mechanism to automatically merge (or close) pull requests.

Consensus Rules

The file .gitconsensus.yaml needs to be placed in the repository to be managed. Any rule set to false or ommitted will be skipped.

You can run gitconsensus init to start with a template configuration in the current working directory.

# Which version of the consensus rules to use
version: 3

# Add extra labels for the vote counts and age when merging
extra_labels: false

# Don't count any vote from a user who votes for multiple options
prevent_doubles: true

# The following only applies to pull requests
pull_requests:

  # Minimum number of voters
  quorum: 5

  # Required percentage of "yes" votes (ignoring abstentions)
  threshold: 0.65

  # Only process votes by contributors
  contributors_only: false

  # Only process votes by collaborators
  collaborators_only: false

  # When defined only process votes from these github users
  whitelist:
    - alice
    - carol

  # When defined votes from these users will be ignored
  blacklist:
    - bob
    - dan

  # Number of hours after last action (commit or opening the pull request) before issue can be merged
  merge_delay: 24

  # Number of votes from contributors at which the mergedelay gets ignored, assuming no negative votes.
  delay_override: 10

  # When `delayoverride` is set this value is the minimum hours without changes before the PR will be merged
  merge_delay_min: 1

  # Require this amount of time in hours before a PR with a license change will be merged.
  licensed_delay: 72

  # Require this amount of time in hours before a PR with a consensus change will be merged.
  consensus_delay: 72

  # Do not allow license changes to be merged.
  license_lock: true

  # Do not allow consensus changes to be merged.
  consensus_lock: true

  # Number of hours after last action (commit or opening the pull request) before issue is autoclosed
  timeout: 720

Voting

Votes are made by using reactions on the top level comment of the Pull Request.

Label Overrides

Any Pull Request with a WIP or DONTMERGE label (case insensitive) will be skipped over.

Commands

Authentication

gitconsensus auth

You will be asked for your username, password, and 2fa token (if configured). This will be used to get an authentication token from Github that will be used in place of your username and password (which are never saved).

Initialization

gitconsensus merge USERNAME REPOSITORY

Close

Close all pull requests that have passed the "timeout" date (if it is set).
