This is a gem for maintaining MAINTAINERS files.
$ gem install maintainers
Some use cases:
Create an empty MAINTAINERS file
The only top-level configurable you might want to specify is the issues url.
maintainers create --issues https://github.com/gracehopper/newthing/issues
At this point you might drop some comments in the resultant MAINTAINERS file.
Add or remove a maintainer from a MAINTAINERS file
Add users identified by github id, optionally specifying name, email address, and a comment.
maintainers add --github gracehopper --email email@example.com --name "Grace Hopper" maintainers add --github gracehopper --email firstname.lastname@example.org --name "Grace Hopper" --comment "Maintains ENIAC"
Remove user by specifying the github id:
maintainers remove --github gracehopper
List maintainers from a MAINTAINERS file
Emit a list of maintainers:
Produce a summary report of maintainers within the puppetlabs org
Validate the MAINTAINERS file
Run this from the root of your project.
Getting a github token
Some commands (for now, just
report) will make use of a github token if one is specified in an environment variable
To use this, you will need to generate a suitable github token like so:
- Logged in at github.com, click on your avatar (upper right), then select 'Settings'
- In the left-hand nav scroll down to 'Personal Access Tokens' and select that
- Then select 'Generate new token'
- Give the token a description, then be sure to select the 'repo' permissions as in the image below
- Then click 'Generate Token' down below, and copy the resultant token to wherever you specify the
After checking out the repo, run
bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run
rake spec to run the tests. You can also run
bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.
To install this gem onto your local machine, run
bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in
version.rb, and then run
bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the
.gem file to rubygems.org.
