request to change the creator of bazaar branches (used for abusive behavior)

Asked by Olivier Dony (Odoo) on 2012-10-18

Dear Launchpad administrator,

We know that the "creator" that appears on each bazaar branch is only informational, but it is rather prominently displayed, and in our case we heard it was being abused by ex-employees to masquerade as current employees. This is a little bit annoying because it happens on our trunk branches, which will presumably live forever, and have hundreds of stacked branches and as many merge proposals linked to them. So renaming or deleting them is not an option.

(We asked on the IRC channel and were redirected here)

Would it be possible to change the recorded creator for all our official trunk branches:
 - lp:~openerp/openobject-addons/trunk
 - lp:~openerp/openobject-server/trunk
 - lp:~openerp/openobject-client/trunk
 - lp:~openerp/openobject-client-web/trunk
 - lp:~openerp/openerp-web/trunk

to one of the administrators of the ~openerp-administrator team (in charge of all official OpenERP projects), for example OpenERP's CEO Fabien Pinckaers (~fp-tinyerp), in order to avoid similar problems in the future.

Hiding the creator information or making it editable would also work, of course :-)

Thanks for your help for this rather unusual request,

PS: we'll be more careful in the future when creating wannabe-trunk branches

I've changed the registrant of those five branches to the ~openerp-administrator team itself.

Thanks William Grant, that solved my question.

Thanks a lot William, having an anonymous team as the creator will help avoid any possible abuse later, that's even better than I hoped :-)
