Project Owner FAQ

What are these "Project Role Requests"

The system allows users to request roles in projects. The project owner gets these requests via email and a link to the approval page. All of the roles available for requesting via the interface are read only roles for the repository. They can submit a file in docs & files, join email lists, and the forum if there is one enabled in the project.

Even though these are just read only roles, the requests have to be approved by the project owner. Normally this was because we allowed all roles to be requested. But allowing people to request these roles via the interface caused a lot of confusion. Now other roles with write capability must be assigned by the project owner.

Roles thus should be approved when you get them as they really have no affect other than the user showing interest in a project. There should be info on you project page that shows what the process is for becoming a project committer or other role.


If you want to email any user to ask why they are requesting a role, you can send them an email using their OSGeo ID. All registered members can be contacted via the OSGeo ID by emailing the ID@osgeo.org. For example, user foo can be contacted at foo@osgeo.org.
