78 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id4" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
79 <p>Since Mike Doty (kingtaco) created an Arch Tester (AT) project in January 2005
80 to reduce the developer's load and the amount of open keywording bugs for the
81 amd64 porting team, many users have volunteered to become ATs. They are doing
82 a fair share of everyday's work to keep the amd64 and ppc trees up to date.
83 While they spent many hours and even had to pass the staff quiz, they are
84 currently not recognized as official members of Gentoo.</p>
85 </div>
86 <div class="section" id="specification">
87 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id5" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
88 <p>ATs should basically be treated as staff. This includes the following changes
89 to the current situation:</p>
90 <ul class="simple">
91 <li>Get a &#64;(subdomain_to_be_determined).gentoo.org email address. The email
92 address will just be an alias, and will be forwarded to their &#64;gentoo.org
93 address if they go on to become a Gentoo developer.</li>
94 <li>Get read-only access to the gentoo-x86 repository. This doesn't have to be
95 individual accounts, a single account, without a shell, with all of their
96 keys will be sufficiant.</li>
97 </ul>
98 <p>There will be a 30 day probationary/mentoring period for new ATs.The lead AT/HT
99 for arch/herd will be responsible for the mentoring period. If arch/herd
100 doesn't have a Lead AT/HT, then either the arch/herd lead or the Strategic AT
101 Lead will be responsible. The Lead AT is a seasoned developer that watches for talent,
102 recruits and mentors ATs. Additionally, the mentoring period should be shortened
103 to a minimum of two weeks if an AT wants to take the end quiz to become a developer,
104 assuming he has been AT for at least two weeks. The amd64 porting team has handled
105 situations like this for a while and only made positive experiences.</p>
106 <p>Also, the idea of an arch tester as a trustworthy user who is able to test
107 critical changes (such as hard masked software branches), could be expanded
108 to other herds. These 'ATs' wouldn't be called arch testers as the 'arch' is
109 irritating, instead, herd tester (HT) could be used.</p>
110 <p>As arch testers (and herd testers) become official staff, they should be
111 handled by DevRel.</p>
112 <p>Since ATs don't want to have to handle the big 'communication overhead'
113 normally, they won't be subscribed to the gentoo-core mailing list and won't
114 be able to vote.</p>
