Subject [DISCUSS] Podlings & Gitbox Usage
Date Fri, 28 Jul 2017 15:48:34 GMT

As many are aware, Infra has been rolling out a new service that allows
projects to leverage git repositories dually hosted on github and ASF git
repositories, commonly known as gitbox.  This effectively allows a project
to commit directly to Github and have those commits reflect back on the ASF

This has been especially useful to a number of projects, since the github
interface gives many options for managing repositories.  I've recently also
asked infra to open it up to allow any IPMC member to request a gitbox
repository for any approved podling that is using gitbox.  Podlings I think
have found this useful, since many of them come from a github background.
They like using the tool and having it available for all to use.

So with that said, I want to propose some broad incubator wide policies for
gitbox.  I'd like to propose that gitbox usage is approved for all
podlings, there is nothing to inhibit a podling to request a gitbox
repository and as long as a podling feels the need to use gitbox, like they
would any other tool that we can integrate with, they should be free to use
it without any additional approvals required.

So please let me know your thoughts.  If I don't hear any -1's I plan to
submit an infra ticket early next week to enable the access for all
approved podlings.  Please note that your first conversion may need some
lead time with infra.
