Merge Request Coach Lifecycle

Applying to become a Merge Request Coach

  1. Create an MR to add "Merge Request Coach" to "departments" and "expertise" sections in your team page entry (see example).
  2. Explain your motivation in the MR body:
    • Why you want to become a Merge Request Coach?
    • How much time you are planning to spend on it?
    • Which duties you are focusing on (e.g. triage, finish stale MRs)?
  3. Mention @gitlab-org/coaches and assign one of them.
  4. Once accepted, one of the coaches with Owner permissions should add you to the @gitlab-org/coaches group.

Stepping down gracefully

If you are no longer able to serve as a Merge Request Coach, you should identify another GitLab team member to take your place so that the capacity of the remaining coaches remains the same. When you are ready to step down, you need to:

  1. Make an announcement on the #mr-coaching Slack channel.
  2. Update the team.yml file to remove "Merge Request Coach".
  3. Remove yourself from the @gitlab-org/coaches group.
