OmpiReleaseBotCommands

Jeff Squyres edited this page Sep 22, 2016 · 9 revisions

As noted in other wiki pages, most developers cannot set the following attributes on issues and pull requests in the ompi-release repo:

NOTE: AS OF SEPTEMBER 2016, THIS PAGE IS A BIT STALE; WE NO LONGER HAVE AN ompi-release REPO. THIS PAGE NEEDS TO BE UPDATED. THE OMPI-RELEASE-BOT COMMANDS ARE NO LONGER NECESSARY.

  • Labels
  • Milestones
  • Assignees

This is due to limitations in the Github permissions system.

Specifically, most developers do not have push/write access to the ompi-release repo. Github also interprets that to mean that those users should not be able to set labels, milestones, and assignees.

As a workaround, we have a bot monitoring the issues and pull requests on the ompi-release repo. Any Github user who is a member of the Open MPI Github organization can issue commands in any issue/pull request that will set/unset labels, milestones, and assignees.

One-time setup

As a security measure, the bot will only allow commands from users in the Open MPI Github organization.

Github defaults to making your membership in the Open MPI organization private; you must change it to public (so that the bot can query to see if you're a member of the organization).

  1. Go to this page: https://github.com/orgs/open-mpi/people
  2. Find yourself on that page and change your Membership from "Private" to "Public".

Once you do this, the bot will recognize you as a member of the organization, and will allow you to issue any of the commands below.

Commands that the bot recognizes

Example

For example, if you file a pull request (PR) with the following initial text:

This PR fixes problem XYZ.

bot:milestone:v1.8.5
bot:label:bug
bot:label:enhancement
bot:assign: @jsquyres

Then the OMPIBot will set the v1.8.5 milestone, put the labels bug and enhancement on it, and assign it to user jsquyres.

Short version

Here's the tokens that OMPIBot recognizes:

  • bot:label:LABEL assigns the label "LABEL" to the issue
    • :+1: is a synonym for bot:label:reviewed and bot:nolabel:pushed-back.
  • bot:nolabel:LABEL removes the label "LABEL" from the issue
    • :-1: is a synonym for bot:nolabel:reviewed and bot:label:pushed-back.
  • bot:milestone:MILESTONE assigns the milestone "MILESTONE" to the issue
  • bot:nomilestone: unassigns the currently-assigned milestone from the issue
  • bot:assign:USER assigns the user USER to the issue.
    • You can also use the form bot:assign:@USER.
    • You can also use the form bot:assign: @USER (note the extra space!), which allows for Github auto-completion.
  • bot:unassign: unassigns the currently-assigned user from the issue

More detail

  • You can list multiple tokens in a single issue/PR/comment. E.g., bot:label:bug bot:label:documentation bot:milestone:v1.8.5
  • Except for the bot:assign: @USER form, do not put whitespace between the colon and the following token (e.g., label, milestone, or user).
  • Tokens don't have to be on their own line, but they do have to be whitespace delimited (whitespace does include newlines and beginning/end of string).
    • E.g., Please assign bot:label:foo. will attempt to assign the label foo. (note the period), NOT the label foo
  • You can assign multiple labels to a single issue.
  • You can only assign a single milestone to an issue.
    • You can assign milestone X and then later assign milestone Y; OMPIBot is smart enough to unassign X before assigning Y.
  • You can only assign a single user to an issue.
    • You can assign user A and then later assign user B; OMPIBot is smart enough to unassign A before assigning B.
  • You cannot list milestones or labels that include spaces (someone can add this feature in the future if they care enough). For OMPI's purposes, we're going to s/ /-/g in all of OMPI's milestones and labels.
  • If something goes wrong, the OMPIBot will add a comment to the issue explaining the error.
    • E.g., if you specify a label that does not exist
    • Or if you specify a milestone that does not exist
    • Or if you specify a user that cannot be assigned to the issue
  • Label, milestone, and username matching is all case-insensitive
    • E.g., bot:label:Reviewed is equivalent to bot:label:reviewed (regardless of whether the actual Github label is actually reviewed, Reviewed, or even REVIEWED).
  • The OMPIBot typically reacts to each submission within a few seconds. If more than 5 minutes goes by and the OMPIBot doesn't act, let @jsquyres and @ggouaillardet know.
