Subject RE: SVN vs Git
Date Mon, 13 Feb 2012 17:08:17 GMT
I'm definitely in agreement with Martin here. Because Apache has (very
necessary) policies to control what gets committed, it is not really geared
toward the potentially large community involvement that Flex might attract
when we finally get a chance to get going. We may well want to undertake
some big changes, involving lots of people who aren't committers. Or we may
want to simple share experimental ideas. Apache's SVN is not set up to
support either of these very well, whereas Github is. So it'll make complete
sense for collaborative development work to take place away from Apache and
for it to be fed back in - via Jira - when ready to form part of the
official Flex code.

If all the PPMC members are going to take Nicholas' "if I wasn't involved,
then I won't accept it" attitude to the efforts of non-PPMC people, then the
rest of us might as well just give up and go home now...

David.
