Re: Proposal to the TSC: enable 2FA requirement across all orgs

Brian Behlendorf

Thanks Andy.  I'm also guessing it's not possible to require 2FA across only some GH repos within a given org.

The quickest/best approach then is likely some sort of survey of committers (as measured by commits to any repo over the last say 3 months) asking each to confirm they're using 2FA.  Then those who haven't yet confirmed can be followed up with to make sure there's no technical barrier keeping them from moving.  After some window of time (say a month), given no technical barriers, it's enabled for all repos and orgs.

It is probably worth a vote on the TSC on the policy question: should 2FA be a requirement for commits? If yes, then we can figure out a rollout strategy that best balances notice and grace with expediency.

No, that's not actually possible. You can verify if a change comes in
with a GPG signature on it, but not if a particular account is using 2FA
for access to the GitHub UI. Those are two distinctly different things.

As an aside, we currently have a change under review [0] against lftools
that will allow someone with admin rights on a GH org to get an "audit"
of the org including who does and does not have 2FA enabled.

Can we tell which commits come in without 2FA?

You should give a warning. You can add all github ids to a team and @

advance warning and update to contributors guides.

We will lose many members that are committers. It will cause turbulence.
