Maintainer Guide for Jenkins X
This document outlines some of the responsibilities expected from you as a maintainer.
Requirements of becoming a maintainer
If you are a long time Jenkins X contributor, you should consider becoming a maintainer.
- Active contributions in Jenkins X community for atleast 6 months
- Pull requests making changes to code or documentation
- Review PRs from new contributors
- Answer questions from the community in the slack channel
- Answer questions in github issues
- Approval from the current Jenkins X maintainers/TOC (Technical Oversight Committee)
Once you are ready to become a maintainer, open a PR to the jx-community repository.
A core maintainer is expected to have access to the following resources
- Member role in all Jenkins X github org
- Jenkins X infra hosted in GCP (jenkins-x-bdd and jenkinsxio projects)
- 1password account to access Jenkins X related secrets
- Jenkins X zoom account
- Jenkins X youtube channel

It’s expected that a core maintainer will make Jenkins X more stable and feature packed, while engaging with the community.
- Uphold the CDF Code of Conduct
- Answer questions on slack (jenkins-x-user and jenkins-x-dev)
- Try to attend all community office hour meetings
- Attend the CDF TOC meetings from time to time
- Join one of the CDF SIGs, and give a short status update during the office hours.
- Assign appropriate labels to issues
- (If possible) assign the right person to those issues

- Provide feedback in github issues
Jenkins X has a lot of repositories, and new contributions from a very active community. It’s the responsibilities of a maintainer to ensure we do timely PR reviews.
It’s desirable to follow the conventions outlined here
- Ensure flaky tests are identified and fixed. This will ensure that new features get released timely
- Close old PRs which cannot be merged anymore.
- Keep all helm charts in the jx3-version up to date.
- Regularly upgrade the hugo image used in the jx-docs repository
