control system. Git and more recently, Github integration, has been a hot topic. This warrants
a few questions to panel members, such as how have you setup your workflow as far as working
on bugfixes, codechanges and accepting patches goes?

our distribution server and mirrors. At the same time, a lot of projects also provide convenience
binaries to many different channels. Quite a few projects, inside and out of Apache, are adoption
fast release cycles, where it's not uncommon to have a weekly release. What's your take on
this and how could Apache facilitate such a process better?

and they would ask you what the benefits are of bringing their project to Apache, what would
be your response? Also, where could such a community get more information about Apache and
the incubator?
