All projects in the PyCQA should have a Code of Conduct that they are willing to enforce.

Project Management

Each project is managed by its own members. There is no over-arching management over all projects in the PyCQA. While many people could merge pull requests and close issues on all repositories, they are trusted to not do so unless they are specifically a member of the team maintaining that project. At least one member of each project’s administration will be an Owner of the organzation. This is to allow them to manage their teams and membership of others in teams.

Team Structure

Projects are encouraged to have as many teams as they deem necessary to run their project. Most projects operate with the following:

  • Team of administrators - this team has “Admin” permissions in GitHub for the project’s repository/repositories.
  • Team of developers (or cores, or whatever you want to call them) - this team has “Write” permissions in GitHub for the project’s repository/repositories.

This set-up allows projects to add more people who can merge pull requests and close issues without being able to change settings on the repository itself, add or remove services, etc.
