Subject Re: [RESULT][VOTE] Graduation of Apache Drill from the Incubator
Date Sun, 26 Oct 2014 05:05:58 GMT
As a general rule, we *always* preserve patch's author information in the
commits.

There have been, however, occasions where more than one contributors
have worked together on a single feature and whenever it had made sense,
voluntarily squashed commits under a single contributor's name. Even in
such cases, the commit retains one of the original contributor's
information.

Mongo storage plugin [1] is one such example.
