As a quick update, I was wrong about what I said below.  Masters cannot
add/remove users, only Owners can.  I've made everyone in the Masters list
below an Owner.  It also means that you can do all sorts of dangerous
things like delete the entire mesa group.  Please be careful. :-)

> All,
> As part of the move to GitLab, we have a few decisions to make regarding
> users and groups.
> Question 1: Who should be masters?
> Gitlab divides users into three categories per-project: Guests,
> Developers, and Masters.  In general, developers and masters will have push
> access.  Masters have the ability to add developers to the project.
> Masters will also have the ability to unlock the branch, force-push, and
> then re-lock if needed.  I'm going to nominate the following people for
> masters:
> Brian Paul
> Marek Oslak
> Eric Anholt
> Jason Ekstrand
> Ken Graunke
> Jose Fonseca
> Ian Romanick
> Dave Airlie
> Matt Turner
> Ilia Mirkin
> Nicolai Hahnle
> Rob Clark
> If you think anyone else, including yourself, should be a master, feel
> free to nominate more.  We probably don't want everyone to be masters but
> we want enough that we don't have trouble finding one when someone needs to
> be added as a developer.
> Question 2: Should we drop developer privileges from old accounts?
> I think the answer is probably yes.  As a straw-man, I propose we drop
> developer privileges (push access) from anyone who has been inactive for
> over two years.  It's trivially easy to give old developers their push
> access back if they show back up with patches.  I would further propose
> that if an old developer shows up who had a good track-record in the past
> that we just give them their commit access back without them having to get
> another two dozen patches landed first.
> I'm happy to hear people's thoughts on either of the above questions.
