Probably not very well :-). Basically, we know how to do the apache- 
style open source process using centralized version control, we don't  
quite know how to do it using (significantly) different version  
control models.

That can (will?) change, but it probably can't change very quickly.

I think it's a good idea to treat it as a seperate topic.

1. You have to use subversion.

2. You are cordially invited to engage within apache to see what we  
can do about modifying rule #1.

For #2, I can immediately imagine some ways to use git-svn that are  
quite acceptable. I can also imagine some things that are probably  
not so easily acceptable. I can imagine a BoF session at the next  
ApacheCon about it :-)
