Is it possible to convert a user/person into a team?

Asked by Gol D. Ace on 2017-03-15


I'm part of obsproject.

We had a single person manage our PPA under obsproject/obs-studio.
This person is now too busy for doing this.

Ideally, we want a team so if this happens again we can easily give someone else access.

What is the cleanest / best way to convert the user/person obsproject into a team?

Thank you

It's not possible to convert a person into a team. You'd need to delete the PPA, rename the person, create a fresh team, and create a new PPA (which would have a new signing key).

Launchpad person objects are meant to represent single entities, either people or robots. They shouldn't ever be used to represent a project or any other group like that.

Thank you very much for your answer.

Yeah this wasn't thought through I must admit when the ppa got created.
