320 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id4" id="motivation" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
321 <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 <div class="section">
329 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id5" id="specification" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
330 <p>ATs should basically be treated as staff. This includes the following changes
331 to the current situation:</p>
332 <ul class="simple">
333 <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 individual accounts, a single account, without a shell, with all of their
338 keys will be sufficiant.</li>
339 </ul>
340 <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 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 situations like this for a while and only made positive experiences.</p>
348 <p>Also, the idea of an arch tester as a trustworthy user who is able to test
349 critical changes (such as hard masked software branches), could be expanded
350 to other herds. These 'ATs' wouldn't be called arch testers as the 'arch' is
351 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 <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>
