Subject Re: [DISCUSS] NuttX Proposal
Date Fri, 29 Nov 2019 03:29:44 GMT

It is our intention to use the Apache GitHub.  I have been using 
Bitbucket for a few years and have resisted moving to GitHub.  I like 
Bitbucket only because I know how to use it (My favorite tools are 
always the ones I know how to use).  But GitHub is the plan of record if 
NuttX is accepted as a podling.

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 imagine that 
it will take a month or two to get the GitHub repositories ready for 
prime time.  During that time, I think that the Bitbucket/BSD 
repositories should continue with business as usual with changes pulled 
into the Apache Github until such time that support can transition 
seamlessly to GitHub.

Does that seem reasonable?  We may be somewhat different from other 
podlings because of the state and maturity of the code.

projects have moved that way it not a requirement to use. You could use svn [1] or git at
Apache and be hosted on the ASF servers.  You can even be hosted at the ASF and on GitHub
[1]. Committers are not forced to use GitHub if they don't want to. Staying at bitbucket is
probably not an option, but you could talk to Infra to see if it was possible.
