71 <p>Since Mike Doty (kingtaco) created an Arch Tester (AT) project in January 2005
72 to reduce the developer's load and the amount of open keywording bugs for the
73 amd64 porting team, many users have volunteered to become ATs. They are doing
74 a fair share of everyday's work to keep the amd64 and ppc trees up to date.
75 While they spent many hours and even had to pass the staff quiz, they are
76 currently not recognized as official members of Gentoo.</p>
77 </div>
78 <div class="section" id="specification">
79 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id4" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
80 <p>ATs should basically be treated as staff. This includes the following changes
81 to the current situation:</p>
82 <ul class="simple">
83 <li>Get a &#64;gentoo.org email address</li>
84 <li>Get read-only access to the gentoo-x86 repository</li>
85 </ul>
86 <p>Additionally, the mentoring period should be shortened to two weeks if an AT
87 wants to take the end quiz to become a developer, assuming he has been AT for
88 at least two weeks. The amd64 porting team has handled situations
89 like this for a while and only made positive experiences.</p>
90 <p>Also, the idea of an arch tester as a trustworthy user who is able to test
91 critical changes (such as hard masked software branches), could be expanded
92 to other herds. These 'ATs' wouldn't be called arch testers as the 'arch' is
93 irritating, instead, herd tester (HT) could be used.</p>
94 <p>As arch testers (and herd testers) become official staff, they should be
95 handled by DevRel.</p>
96 <p>Since ATs don't want to have to handle the big 'communication overhead'
97 normally, they won't be subscribed to the gentoo-core mailing list and won't
98 be able to vote.</p>
