Tuning Guidelines

  • Tuning Story 1: When to add new dis/auto/conditional qualifiers to a role certifier?

    • TRC's goal is to provide a comprehensive framework to make the requirements for acquiring a given role explicit. Some of them may require a requirements-based approach, on which everyone that fullfills a base set of qualities is approved for the role, whereas others may require a selection procedure for filling in a limited supply of positions. In terms of heuristics, we can have the following guidelines when creating new qualifiers:

      • Disqualifiers are useful for any vetting process: eg. ban lists and restrictions.

      • Conditional qualifiers are useful when algorithmical procedures for attesting someone to a role is desirable. This tends to be the case with roles in which many members are expected. They can also be useful when the role belonging rules should be made particularly explicit.

      • Autoqualifiers are useful for hierarchical roles, where belonging to a higher-ranked role gives automatic access to all lower roles. They can also be useful for fast-tracking members.

  • Tuning Story 2: When to add new roles?

    • Ideally, a Role Attestation is attesting that some identity should have particular rights. Those rights can than be broken down into pieces or bundled together as combos.

      • Adding new roles can be useful when new bundles of rights are created. Alternatively, one approach is to associate each potential right with a role, in which case any new rights should be associated with new roles.
