Subject Re: Podling to use native git

Hi Guys,

As the project's champion I'll work with the rest of the mentors and PPMC members to make
sure we are moving forward in the Apache Way.

Just a word of caution regarding incubation: if this means this
podling's developers will work outside of Apache and just drop code in
svn from time to time, Apache might not be the right place for your
guys at this time. Things have to happen on your dev list and in svn
if you want to be part of Apache, in order for a community to form
around those channels.

We've had some projects realize way too late that the Apache way of
working was not for them - if that's the case for you guys, better
fail early.

Volunteering to help improve things is great, of course. I just wanted
to point out that the above statement sounds alarming to me.
