I was thinking more like: "Github on ASF hardware". So that instead of
submitting patches to JIRA we have people sign up for an ASF git repo
and push patches that way. Just a thought.

I don't think there's an issue, i was just trying (failing? :) to
describe that some sort of infrastructure that allowed a distributed
workflow could end up providing vastly more oversight of contributions
than email or JIRA and the svn commits list. Its all very hand wavy
