Actually I'm not bothered by non-committers working on git to share  
their findings with the community. I actually think it's an  
interesting approach that might be worth some brain cycles. What  
worries me is noticing that CouchDB committers themselves seem to  
work on github. I don't know if you're syncing up git stuff with  
stuff coming from the ASF repository (which might be kosher in a way)  
or if you're actually using git as your primary development then  
moving code the SVN (that's a no-no in my book).
