Subject Re: Apache Flex in Github
Date Fri, 17 Aug 2012 09:31:03 GMT
Carlos,

I did read the thread before posting, but clearly I didn't understand
all that was said. I got through the first posts stating 'read-only ->
do patches in Jira', but got confused later on, apparently.

The people used to the Git model should show a little patience towards
us 'old-school' SVN folks, please. Git takes some getting used to when
you come from SVN, as some of the terminology used is the same, some
is new, and, confusingly, SOME IS THE SAME, BUT MEANS SOMETHING
DIFFERENT. I'm sure we're all trying to get our heads around the new
way of working and the new tooling involved.

Also, as long as there is no full support for Git, do we try to
'force' Git, or do we continue in SVN. Doing both at the same time
seems confusing and means a lot of extra work for the committers, as
they have to operate both systems...
