Subject Re: Time to move to (ASF-sanctioned) git?

If gerrit is that much better jira we could make a case for it.

I mean.. ASF's using git as well as SVN.. It's isn't a government  
department or a fortune 500 with a IT standard which is iron solid.

It's more a support issue. we mainly rely on volunteers to keep the  
boxes running (and yes it needs to be hosted on ASF hardware), and  
having every project use their favorite tool for doing X makes it much  
harder to manage.

as for CTR (commit than review) or RTC (review than commit). thats a  
project decision. If you guys feel more comfortable at this stage of  
the project to go to RTC, then put it up for vote on do it. your  
grownups, you know the risks and rewards.
