Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Migrate from svn to git for source control?
Date Mon, 04 Aug 2014 23:17:58 GMT
Thank you for great suggestion, Karthik. +1(non-binding) to use git.
I'm also using private git repository.
Additionally, I have one question. Will we accept github-based
development like Apache Spark? IHMO, it allow us to leverage Hadoop
development, because the cost of sending pull request is very low and
its review board is great. One concern is that the development
workflow can change and it can confuse us. What do you think?
