Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Update of "Git_At_Apache_Guide" by MarkStruberg
Date Sat, 19 Nov 2011 10:43:02 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Couchdb Wiki" for change notification.

The "Git_At_Apache_Guide" page has been changed by MarkStruberg:

  For understanding the technical aspects of GIT and SVN please read [[SVNvsGIT]]. This will
help you to grok the design decissions
  GIT at the ASF is currently an experiment. We have defined criteria under which this experiment
should be considered [[GitSuccessCriteria|successful]].
+ == Hosting ==
+ Canonical GIT repositories for Apache projects must be hosted on ASF hardware, under full
control of the ASF infrastructure. This has quite a few reasons:
+  1. Our Source Code Repositories are there for one reason: helping the community. This can
best be supported by having one single canonical repository. Projects having multiple equitable
repository clones tend to split the community.
+  1. UserIDs outside of are not relyable! We can only guarantee a fully trusted
authentication for servers we host ourselfs!
+  1. Authentication can later be extended to support login via ssh keys uploaded to
(we need to drop this as infra ticket)
  == Project Structure ==
   1. Each project has at least one GIT repository which contains the main project and is
read/writable for all committers.
