I find it outrageous that the top-level maintainers of the
project "games" have the audacity to remove
maintainers from packages. It is the second time this has happened. And
it is getting evermore unscrupulous.

was placed. Minutes later, a competing SR was force-pushed by

The timely proximity makes this veer into a "oh well, happens"
domain. BUT, OBS should have shown a merge conflict to start with,
which would make this would instance 1 of overstepping. The SR was
just an hour old, so here is also instance 2, aka. the year-long
problem with trigger-happy prj-level maintainers.
Using copypac to just get back r5, access rights get rescinded minutes
later on the grounds of vandalism. Not only was this supposed vandalism
not reverted, it indeed got submitted as-is by DarkSS to Factory and
showing up in my review list, so this can only mean someone is pulling a
really bad prank. As mail trickles in later, two OBS comments get
delivered for asking for a specific procedure and a announcement of
rights removal due to not heeding the procedure.
In other words, DarkSS is also expecting people to read - and receive -
mail in short intervals, ignoring the fact that interwebs do not always
work that way. In all, this is unacceptable.
The openSUSE Project is being asked to restore rights and take
appropriate measures to turn off such behavior, because it is adversely
affecting the project atmosphere. If your maintainer rights get revoked
at any point in time for *acting* like a maintainer, who would want to
stay with the openSUSE Distribution project?
