We'll always be dependent on something. The Apache Foundation's been OK 
with the use of Github (afaik), so I don't see a problem with 
continuing. We're not at risk of loosing code. We get a simpler, more 
familiar process for new devs--something we need more of! And one of the 
simplest code review and sharing available with no more maintenance time 
required from us or the Foundation.

+1 for sticking with Github PRs and encouraging their use.

We still have Jira issues and email for folks that'd like to email/post 
patches that way. Review of those could even be made into a branch on 
Github--by the interested developer(s)/committers--for further 

Let's keep moving. :)
