Subject Re: Github Permissions for Committers
Date Fri, 13 Dec 2013 20:08:17 GMT
There is currently no set standard procedure or policy for Github. Apache
Cordova is the only project that I am aware of that uses Github as a means
for patch ingestion and they require that all contributors have an ICLA on
file and explicitly grant use to the ASF for that submission. Apache
Usergrid (incubating) has recently decided to follow this method as well.

I am personally not a proponent of this workflow and would recommend using
the tools that are currently in place and provided by infra. I have found
it much easier to move from project to project and help across the board
and be able to search, cross link and reference other projects issues
rather than having to leave and use external systems.
