Dear Wiki user,

The "Git_At_Apache_Guide" page has been changed by MarkStruberg:

add more info about hosting GIT@ASF 

   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)
+  1. Relying on external infrastructure for our own core business is frankly spoken pretty
unwise. This would not only split the community but also would us make loose our independence.
We would have no access to the underlying hardware, thus no way to handle threats if someone
tries to taint our repositories.
  == Project Structure ==
   1. Each project has at least one GIT repository which contains the main project and is
read/writable for all committers.
