Subject Re: [DISCUSS] GitBox
Date Tue, 18 Jul 2017 10:21:53 GMT
We recently moved flink-shaded to GitBox; overall I'm quite happy with 
how it works.

However, it is not possible for committers to push commits that haven't 
gone through the github/asf
account linking process (https://gitbox.apache.org/setup/).

I verified this today in an experiment with the help of Robert.

The linking process requires every committer to join the ASF github 
organization, include their github username
in the apache profile, and setup 2-factor-authorization for their github 

While i would love to have the gitbox functionality for the Flink 
repository I don't know whether we want to
impose these requirements on all committers.
