Contributing to FDB Operator - PRs limited to collaborators

I am trying to submit a PR with a patch but PRs are now restricted to collaborators. Could you let me know how to proceed?

Hi Manuel, thanks for asking here. We’ve recently been required to be more cautious with automatic building of PRs. This (contributor only PR creation) is an extreme mechanism to make sure that we do not allow untrusted actors to kick off builds in our CI system. I’m working on building something nicer, but it needs more time.

I see that you are a previous contributor (Thanks!) I’ve just sent over an invite to add you to the fdb-kubernetes-operator repo.

This process will stand in the medium term and if anyone else happens across this issue. Please reach out (via these forums, or the community slack) and I’m glad to make an accommodation for contributors.

Thank you very much for the quick response.

I would update with the current status. Otherwise it is a bit confusing since the document says PRs for minor changes are welcome.
Maybe add a note saying collaborator status is required for x and y. And how to get the access if legit contributions are available.

Hi Manuel, agree with your dilemma here and we should be able to provide better guidelines for future contributors. In some sense more contributions from the community members, make the code better and engages more and better ideas.

Just a suggestion, if PR is an interest for you, feel free to post the suggestion patch to the forum and one of the existing contributors would/should be more than willing to propose PR and hopefully commit it on your behalf in the meantime.
Hope this helps.
