Last year I introduced a way to manage open source projects with GitConsensus, an open source Github bot that anyone can download and run.
Today running GitConsensus is even easier with the availability of a new GitConsensus GitHub App. Developers can now add GitConsensus directly to their repositories simply by enabling it in GitHub and then adding the consensus files. There’s even example consensus rules covering a variety of options, from anarchy to oligarchy (with a set of recommended rules that is good for most projects).
In order to get this all working I also had to build a new GitHub Apps Python Library. This library extends the excellent github3.py library, making it easier to extend projects already built using it into full-fledged GitHub Apps.
