I've always frowned on shared user ids (assuming they were excuses for not
getting group permissions right) but that isn't the case here, we are
working around an SVN bug. [If the bug really does only have a life
expectancy of a few weeks, the rollout might take longer.]

As such +1 to this idea. So long as gump is a member of the gump group, that
we all have ids within, then it can be easily obsoleted once unecessary.

100% agreed.

Anybody know how to do a share cronjob any other way?

I agree, it'd be daft to do a quick transition without everybody around.
That said, what I am really hoping for is:

1) Grant folks access to live/working Gumps so they can do 'quick runs'
(like python gump/ xmlunit --debug --quick, to test properties,
2) Grant folks access to live/working Gumps to spread the knowledge, and get
more input/opinions on how to install this nicely.
3) Get documentation for the installs into the wiki, and that documentation
come from somebody unfamiliar with the config, so they explain it better.

I hope that we can still get these.
