Release Technician role wrt FRS

Reported by: keithmarshall Owned by:
Keywords: Cc: ir0nh34d
Private: no


As administrator of the MinGW project, I received a notification from one of my project members, designated as a Release Technician, that he was unable to navigate to the FRS management page, because he does not see the "Project Admin" tab, when logged in.

Your new site documentation, relating to the FRS, explicitly instructs users to log in as project administrator, to manage file releases; this rather negates any value which the Release Technician role may have had. I certainly don't consider it appropriate that every release technician must now be promoted to the project administrator role, and I'm sure this wasn't your intention. Please review your recent UI changes, with a view to restoring appropriate Release Technician access to the FRS management page.

Hi Keith,

Users with Release Technician permissions may access the FRS system via the Browse All Packages menu item on the project summary page.

We are updating our site documentation to reflect this process.

Thanks Danny.

I've passed this information on to my project members.
