There’s a new Sheriff in town - maintaining repo access permissions on the CNCF org When you want to grant access to your project repos to maintainers and collaborators, please submit a pull request to update the config.yaml file in the cncf/people repo. Sheriff is being used to centralize repo access control for the CNCF org on GitHub. Sheriff runs once per hour, is launched from a Github Action on cncf/people, and it will undo any changes to repo permissions that are made via a repo’s settings.yml file.

Sheriff also allows us to structure our teams to reflect team roles and Sheriff teams are cross platform.
