Hi all. Consider this an overdue spring cleaning.
There has been discussion of consolidation of committer groups of the web UI squad down from over 25 to just 4.
The as-is problem is that committers rights are per-repo, so as we gain more apps, we gain more groups to manage, and there's enough collaboration going on now that having so many groups seems overkill.
Instead, I propose to group committer rights for the web ui squad to just 4 categories, and grow only as needed.
I'd like to kick off a vote on this new grouping which will end by EOD Tuesday

  1. Web Framework Committers: This is for the browser code that powers the framework.
  2. Server Framework Committers: This is for the server code that powers the framework.
  3. App Committers: This is for all of the Apps today. New & Existing apps can be reevaluated for separation of committers if they become too specialized later.
  4. ZSS Committers: This is ZSS and the libraries it depends on.

The big consolidation is that App committers can now work together more easily. Web & server framework committers already had overlap and zss had previously been just 2 repos.

Some repos are organizational, build-related, or shared such that they dont clearly belong in 1 group, and therefore could be shared amongst multiple groups.

Below is the organization I have come up with:
App: file-transfer-app sample-react-app sample-angular-app sample-iframe-app tn3270-ng2 vt-ng2 workshop-starter-app workshop-user-browser-app zlux-charts zlux-editor zlux-file-explorer zlux-file-properties zlux-widgets zlux-workflow zos-subsystems

Server FW: zlux zlux-build zlux-shared zlux-app-server  zlux-server-framework 

App FW: zlux zlux-build zlux-shared zlux-platform zlux-app-manager

ZSS: zowe-common-c zss

The following people are currently committers to these repos and therefore have binding votes:

Please vote with +1, 0, or -1. If your vote is not a +1, please indicate why so we can adjust if needed.
Alternatively, there are some people who have been less active lately. If you no longer wish to be a committer, then you don't need to vote but do tell us so that we can adjust the list.
If the vote is successful, I will make the groups with the previous members but would then like to kick off nominations post-organization so that we can continue to grow & cooperate.

Thank you,
