Subject AW: Hoped for advantages of migrating to git
Date Wed, 07 May 2014 06:28:47 GMT
As a ASF project we MUST have a repo in Apache land:
http://www.apache.org/dev/writable-git
"ASF releases must be cut from the canonical ASF Git repositories."

The absolute minimum is therefore:
- working on somewhere else 
- starting a release:
-- pull all changes to local
-- push to ASF-repo
-- create a branch/tag in the ASF repo for the release
-- do the release

But personally I prefer having one "right" repo in the ASF I could trust.
Additional repos somewhere else (like on Github) could "just help".

(If working with Git - would Gerrit a good candidate?)
