Triage and maintain roles (beta)

Administrators of organization-owned repositories can now assign “triage” and “maintain” roles to collaborators and teams as part of a public beta preview.

If a contributor proves their ability to drive technical discussions or lead development of your project, you can empower them to take on additional issue or repository management responsibilities without needing to also grant the ability to modify your project’s source code or change potentially destructive repository settings.

The new roles are available to all organizations on the Free, Team, and Enterprise Cloud plans. For more information, see our documentation “Repository permission levels for an organization”.
