[Cado-nfs-discuss] commit rights to cado-nfs repository

Someone, whom I don't know, has just requested commit rights to the
The gforge system that inria (still) uses is so badly designed that I
have nothing to identify that person beyond his/her pseudo. In particular
no contact e-mail. (the mail I got came from noreply@ ...).
Assuming this person reads cado-nfs-discuss, here are two thoughts.
- I'm not keen on providing commit rights to someone before having an
idea of what he/she is (capable of) doing and planning to do. On the
other hand, it is perfectly fine for someone to push things on a
github repo, and then we can pull stuff from there. This latter option
is in fact much preferred.
- I hope that we can find time someday to move (as orderly as we can) to
another hosting platform, because gforge will obviously be phased out
eventually (when, I don't know, but I would be surprised if Inria
continues to maintain a gforge server for more than two years from
now). I would rather move to gitlab. This will eventually allow pull
requests in the way it works over github.
