Just to point out, none of those options allow someone who is not a
committer to push code to ASF servers. I was proposing actual Git
repositories for people to sign up and use. Then you could tie every
submission to a user account and probably even a key/value pair for
good measure. This would require that the ASF makes repositories
available for everyone at much lower of a hurdle than a CLA.

And on the pure development side, sharing my work with people would
still incur the wrath of SVN branches.
