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 grace@usnavy.gov --name "Grace Hopper"
maintainers add --github gracehopper --email grace@usnavy.gov --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:

maintainers list

Produce a summary report of maintainers within the puppetlabs org

maintainers report

Validate the MAINTAINERS file

Run this from the root of your project.

maintainers validate

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 GITHUB_TOKEN.

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 GITHUB_TOKEN environment variable
  • Profit!



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.
