Please make checkbox-ihv private

Asked by Marc Tardif on 2012-10-30

Hi folks,

I would appreciate if the checkbox-ihv project could be made private. The project was just created a moment ago so it doesn't have anything linked to it, like bugs, code, etc. Once the project is private, the things eventually linked to it should be private though.

hi if you go to and click on the sharing icon, you can no do all of this yourself for your project.

Thanks, but I don't quite understand why the top of the page says:

 Branches sharing policy: Public
 Bugs sharing policy: Public
 Specification sharing policy: Public

Whereas the Sharing column at the bottom of the same page says:

 Private Security: All
 Private: All

If everything is private, why are branches, bugs and specifications public?

By the way, the top of the page looks different and it's a private project:

 Branches sharing policy: Proprietary, can be proprietary
 Bugs sharing policy: Proprietary, can be public
 Specification sharing policy: Public

These all have little pencil icons that can edit the permissions as opposed to the checkbox-ihv project. Might it be possible that the reason is that this is a "proprietary" project which is different from a "private" project? If that's the case, I think my original question should've asked for a "proprietary" project.

I think you have discovered that you need to 1. make the project private when it is registered. If you act quickly after creating the project, you can use the "Change details" to change the project. Only you can do that, and you will first need to ensure the project has the Proprietary licenses to choose Proprietary.

Oddly, now the checkbox-ihv that I created a couple days ago and only changed the license yesterday doesn't seem to exist anymore. When I go to, I get a "Lost something?" page. Did I fat finger something?

By the way, I did get a message from Launchpad after changing the license. It said something about the subscription expiring on 2012-11-30. Might it be possible that it expired a month early?
