    Works very well. However, now that Stash has branch permissions: https://confluence.atlassian.com/stash/using-branch-permissions-313460915.html this plugin is not needed.

    This is a very helpful plugin. Would it be possible to make it configurable on the Project level?

    Currently it is only configurable at the repository level or globally. If you have a suggestion for how project level configuration should work, submit it as an issue and we can try to come up with a solution. https://bitbucket.org/carolynvs/stash-force-field
