320     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id4" id="motivation" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
321 g2boojum 1.1 <p>Since Mike Doty (kingtaco) created an Arch Tester (AT) project in January 2005
322     to reduce the developer's load and the amount of open keywording bugs for the
323     amd64 porting team, many users have volunteered to become ATs. They are doing
324     a fair share of everyday's work to keep the amd64 and ppc trees up to date.
325     While they spent many hours and even had to pass the staff quiz, they are
326     currently not recognized as official members of Gentoo.</p>
327     </div>
328 g2boojum 1.6 <div class="section">
329     <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id5" id="specification" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
330 g2boojum 1.1 <p>ATs should basically be treated as staff. This includes the following changes
331     to the current situation:</p>
332     <ul class="simple">
333 hparker 1.3 <li>Get a &#64;(subdomain_to_be_determined).gentoo.org email address. The email
334     address will just be an alias, and will be forwarded to their &#64;gentoo.org
335     address if they go on to become a Gentoo developer.</li>
336     <li>Get read-only access to the gentoo-x86 repository. This doesn't have to be
337 g2boojum 1.6 individual accounts, a single account, without a shell, with all of their
338 hparker 1.3 keys will be sufficiant.</li>
339 g2boojum 1.1 </ul>
340 hparker 1.3 <p>There will be a 30 day probationary/mentoring period for new ATs.The lead AT/HT
341     for arch/herd will be responsible for the mentoring period. If arch/herd
342     doesn't have a Lead AT/HT, then either the arch/herd lead or the Strategic AT
343     Lead will be responsible. The Lead AT is a seasoned developer that watches for talent,
344 g2boojum 1.6 recruits and mentors ATs. Additionally, the mentoring period should be shortened
345     to a minimum of two weeks if an AT wants to take the end quiz to become a developer,
346     assuming he has been AT for at least two weeks. The amd64 porting team has handled
347 hparker 1.3 situations like this for a while and only made positive experiences.</p>
348 blubb 1.2 <p>Also, the idea of an arch tester as a trustworthy user who is able to test
349 g2boojum 1.1 critical changes (such as hard masked software branches), could be expanded
350 blubb 1.2 to other herds. These 'ATs' wouldn't be called arch testers as the 'arch' is
351 g2boojum 1.1 irritating, instead, herd tester (HT) could be used.</p>
352     <p>As arch testers (and herd testers) become official staff, they should be
353     handled by DevRel.</p>
354 blubb 1.2 <p>Since ATs don't want to have to handle the big 'communication overhead'
355     normally, they won't be subscribed to the gentoo-core mailing list and won't
356     be able to vote.</p>
