In ci-management, Gerrit does not allow an owner of a contribution

to vote +2 on it, even if the owner is a committer.

That means making Mauro a committer will not help Cicn nor Hicn directly,

unless somebody else starts contributing the needed changes.

Alberto takes care of the release update, so in that case it would be
his responsibility to take care of ci-management as well.

Mauro would take care of reviewing ci-management for what concerns these release
phases jointly with Alberto and myself.
In any case Mauro would continue to contribute to ci-management as usual.

In the past we have had problems for patches on ci-management pending for too long.
We are a small team and most of the time others do not pay attention to our own
patches. Any dependency with people that are not directly committed to our projects
means disruption and broken distributions to our user-base. It happened more than once.

This is why we'd need one team member to pay attention to our own patches in 
ci-management too, in due time, especially during new release phases.



Overall, ci-management could use more active committers,

I am just making sure the limits of their power are understood.



The above link is something Vanessa has asked me to send because TSC requires 
to see measurable contributions for a committer to be nominated candidate
in a given project.
But the link you've shared gives additional arguments, thanks.



In other words, that link does not give you

the list of changes that could have gotten merged sooner

if Mauro were a committer.

This [1] link does.

Have you discussed this Mauro and verified he is interested in becoming a committer?

Thank you,

Below his contribution to ci-management,



In hicn it would be helpful to have a ci-management committer

to take care of our release management.
