mob access

If this experiment is meant to become a community experience, for both developers and users, how about enabling mob access, too [1]? There are often people that are neither core developers, nor aspire to become one, but who are technical users who'd like to more easily submit patches. While most long-term FlightGear users know about the fact that "FlightGear life" takes places on the mailing lists, many others often just end up sharing patches via the forums, patch trackers or even via IRC. So, this would be an extremely easy way for potential contributors to more easily share local modifications with fellow users, without having any effect on any of the trusted main branches or organizational burden on the project lead, so it would sort of become a "sandbox" environment with "wild" code. Core developers could more easily keep track of patches submitted this way, too.--MILSTD 07:29, 4 February 2009 (EST)

The mob branch idea is intriguing, but it is so easy for anyone to set up their own forked flightgear repositories, especially on, that I don't think it's necessary to enable the mob branch. It's really more useful to be able to say "pull the foo branch in my repository" than "pull my cool commit out of the mob branch."--Timoore 05:24, 5 February 2009 (EST)

Repository link templates

Hi Elgaton, I was wondering if you think it is worth creating repository link templates for the Windows-3rd-party, FGCom, terrafs, and MacLauncher git repositories for use in the table? I haven't seen any need anywhere else in the wiki for these yet.

Yes for the Windows-3rd-party/FGCom/TerraFS repositories; I'm not so sure for the MacLauncher one (the code has not seen an update in years). -- ElGaton (talk to me) 08:01, 21 May 2016 (EDT)
Done, and updated the table :) I've left the MacLauncher repository as that is no longer used and the template has no use in the wiki that I can see (it's only mentioned in this article and nowhere else).
