- are created under gpl2 upon request on gitorious, by core developers,
so they are creator/owners with admin rights
- the hangars are submodules of fgdata/Aircrafts and separate repos
– beside the hangar as repo developers create a "hangar team" on
gitorious and give review and commit rights to the new team
- so the hangar team gets access to review/commit the hangar, but no
admin rights. Group members can not delete the hangar, nore can they
change licence or add contributors directly, but team leaders can give
commit rights another way:
- one person or more members of the group get access to administrate the
group (they can give commit rights by adding other members to the hangar
- there is a "default hangar" which contains default stuff like
instruments etc. and official deployment content i.e.
- there will be a huge hangar called "waiting for maintainer"
- All aircrafts gets tags for compatibility
This way hangars are collections of "plug-ins", it is all under one
licence, "main contributors" can manage their teams and get more
autonomy, they can give commit rights without having access to the repo
administration, or they can work alone in a single group, fgdata core
team keep control, hangars can not be deleted, etc. etc.
I know this needs some changes in fgfs core with aircraft paths, and
maybe also a new aircraft-meta-data.xml. But selecting aircrafts by
multiple hangars like for the scenery and update servie by hangars/tags
will probably also be a lot of new comfort for deployment.
Just a thought. I am sure I forgot the most important things ;-)
