Contributors Meetup Async Update - September 2nd, 2023 - September 15th, 2023

@Dean @Natalia_Choconta Thank you for the reports! :+1:

@jalondonot Maybe a solution to this would be to include someone from the BTR working groups in reviews of new repos & MFEs going forward? @itsjeyd Do we have a way to implement this for all PRs with our current processes? I鈥檓 guessing we currently only have a formal process for the OSPRs - but maybe we should have one for all PRs, to enable things like this?

Actually, another blocker reported by @pdpinch could also benefit from that:

We have talked about introducing a bot for helping to manage OSPRs - maybe it could help more broadly, by suggesting/pinging reviewers based on the code that鈥檚 being modified?

@braden Ah, you need a binding :+1: - I hadn鈥檛 realized that previously, I thought you only needed people to review and make comments. I鈥檝e replied on the PR and pinged @itsjeyd for help: fix: type hints weren't installed properly, add type hints for Django Fields by bradenmacdonald 路 Pull Request #259 路 openedx/opaque-keys 路 GitHub

@pdpinch I see that @Michelle_Philbrick is already on it, though it looks like we still don鈥檛 know who can review on this. Similarly to my comment above to Braden and @itsjeyd 鈥 do we have a way to tell who has commit rights and can give a binding :+1: on the repo? And @pdpinch any suggestions on who could be a good reviewer for the PR, even if they don鈥檛 have the rights yet? From Contributors to openedx/frontend-app-gradebook 路 GitHub I also notice that @kmccormick has some commits on it - maybe you can help? CC @arbrandes too since this is frontend.

@sambapete I see that you have been able to make progress on this, and got help from @regis - great! :+1:
