Documentation updates can only be merged by admins

See original GitHub issue
  • This issue is blocking
  • This issue is causing unreasonable pain

There’s a required PR validation check on master that requires some checks to run that don’t actually trigger on doc changes. This means doc PRs are never green and can’t be merged by ordinary users. Without any guidance (clear pathway to get unblocked) this is a terrible experience and discourages doc updates.


  • Fix the checks.
  • Add guidance (or make it easier to find?) how to resolve this (e.g. who to ping to get it merged).

I think we should turn them back on. This is the only repo where we have this workflow, and I don’t think it saves us much when it comes to machine savings. The merge still triggers a CI build and official build that are both giant no-ops too, so the burden on the PR author seems unwarranted.

I think we can get away with just enabling the builds back on. I like the idea of the CI short-circuit if we see that this is putting a lot of strain on the build machines.
