Can we create projects to track multiple user PPAs?

Asked by Thomas Ward on 2015-03-01

I have quite a few PPAs at my disposal, even though I did some cleanup.

Is it possible or even within the rules to set up a project specifically to use as a bugs / answers tracker for those PPAs, so that individuals can file bugs against my PPAs or ask questions about them?

I don't see why it wouldn't be permitted, but I wanted to get an answer from administrators / people well-fluent in the system before I proceeded.

It's fine to create as many free software projects as you want. We only ask that you avoid creating confusion, eg. don't track bugs and questions about your nginx packages in a project named "nginx" unless your packages are officially endorsed by the upstream maintainers.

Right, I was going to run the project as teward-ppas - to identify that they're PPAs specific to my username, rather than the nginx packages in the nginx PPA or the nginx package on Ubuntu (and I can reassign it to those if necessary).

As long as it's not against the rules, I'll proceed. Thanks!
