Anyone who is a committer will be able to “push” changes into the canonical repo here
at Apache.  

Honestly, for committers, you can use git just like you you git-svn or just svn today.   Just
instead of “git svn dcommit” or “svn commit” it would be a “git push”.    If you
don’t want your workflow to change, you don’t really need it to change.   The commands
are just a little different and many of the operations perform much faster.
