Just be aware that you can use git as well and modify the ASF mirror and the changes will
go to GitHub and vice versa. People don’t have to use GitHub if they don’t want to.

> I do have some question about the transition.  NuttX is a very active project with a
large user base.  We have to both (1) modify the code base to conform to licensing and other
requirements, but also (2) continue to support the community with quality releases.

I would suggest moving over repos quickly and continuing to make releases at the ASF with
the work in progress disclaimer.  Alternatively you could not transfer right away and continue
to make a couple of non ASF releases while things are put in order in your current bitbucket
repos. Up to the project to decide.

The physical transfer shouldn’t take that long, fixing up all the headers and licenses may
take longer but that’s OK when using the work in progress disclaimer, you can makes incubating
ASF release that don’t fully comply with ASF policy when including that disclaimer.

Im not sure how easy that’s going to be, generally infra have made a single transfer and
I’m not aware of any projects that tried this approach. It would require some discussion
with infra to see what’s possible here.
