Ok - it's working now. Here is MR #1 !

Does it deserve such a momentous designation? You be the judge.

I should have checked for new mails, before sending my last.

I just granted you Reporter rights (as well as to two other people who requested access -- I did not grant Developer access, of course).

I think the manual approval of new members won't be as tedious as the previous procedure of granting access to our bugzilla. And having a manual step with a small time delay might be a good way to avoid bug/PR-SPAM.

Ok... manual approval sounds tedious. I would recommend figuring out a way to automate the approval e.g. with a button on the website. Otherwise, it's just pointless admin for you guys.

Anyway, my username is "jhol", so can you make me reporter?

    Hi Gael!

    Thanks for this. It's going to make my work so much easier.

    I just wanted to resubmit my int8 ostream patches, but it seems that I     dodn't have permissions to submit a merge request. Do you need to open
    up the MRs to non-members?

thank you for trying. I was indeed unsure whether MR was open to anybody. According to this page:, MR is open for "reporter" members only, meaning that we'll have to manually approve people wanting to join the project to propose MR.

For the record, compared to "guests" (aka everybody for a public project as Eigen), reporters have the following additional permissions:

View Security reports
See a list of jobs
See a job log
Download and browse job artifacts
View confidential issues
Assign issues
Label issues
Lock issue threads
Manage issue tracker
Manage related issues
Manage labels
Create code snippets
See a commit status
See a container registry
See environments
See a list of merge requests
View project statistics
View Error Tracking list

This seems OK to me.
