The community can opt to move from svn to git at Apache. If you do so,
however, you still have some issues with patches. The Apache licence
states that patches submitted to Apache mailing lists or otherwise
delivered to Apache infrastructure are official, licensed,
contributions. I'm not sure of the status of 'please pull this from
repo X' email -- I haven't followed the discussions in that area
