Hi Karthik

I personally use git-svn on a daily basis for all interactions with the
ASF SVN code repository. The trouble with GitHub pull requests is that
they do not come with a formal license grant to ASF, which is a
requisite for inclusion of a patch into ASF works. You would still have
to raise a JIRA and explicitly state your consent to have your changes
licensed to ASF under the terms of ASLv2. This basically kills the
convenience of submitting changes through GitHub pull requests.
