Who should register as a project manager on Ohloh?
Project managers on Ohloh should also manage the project outside of Ohloh. So the Ohloh project managers should have a role like lead developer, release manager, or founder. The project leader might ask someone else to manage the project at Ohloh and naturally, that’s okay.
How does a project manager limit editing of the project?
Project managers may make all the remaining project edits available only to project managers. This is possible by using the project’s permissions page. A link to this page will be available to managers on the left navigation tab of a project page.
I’m a project leader for a project on Ohloh. Do I have to register as a manager?
No. But if you want to disable project edits at some point in the future, it might be a good idea to do so.
Is it encouraged to lock down a project so only managers can edit?
No. For most projects, letting the entire Ohloh community, which likely contains some users and maybe even contributors to a project, contribute edits on Ohloh helps to ensure that the project description and links are up-to-date.
I’ve been maintaining projects on Ohloh – do I have to register as a manager to continue?
No. Everything you’ve been doing will still work. The only exception would be if a manager turns off edits but we suspect this will be rare.
