Adoptium Working Group Marketplace Publisher Agreement - Automate Handshake with FoundationDB
The Adoptium Steering Committee is planning to release the Adoptium Working Group Marketplace by the end of February.
There is a required Publisher Agreement that must be signed with the Eclipse Foundation in order to use the Marketplace. The signing process at this time will be a manual process so unlike OpenVSx in that regard and the Adoptium Marketplace Publisher Agreement will live in the Foundation DB. The only members who can sign the Adoptium Marketplace Publisher Agreement are members of the Adoptium Working Group.
In order to use the Marketplace and/or provide updates to the marketplace, we need a way to automate some sort of handshake from adoptium.net to the Foundation DB to ensure the person making the request to publish works for a member of the WG/signed PA on Documents tab for that member.
Our original hope was to reuse some of the CLI created for OpenVSx.
For cross reference here is the Issue Template that Tim has created - perhaps the check can be automated as part of this form.
As I listened to the discussion on the steering committee call today, I kept coming back to ensuring that the person wishing to publish is verified or predetermined as an employee of that member first and then check the member's record.
I hope this helps to continue the technical discussion.
