Subject Re: Apache Flex in Github
Date Mon, 20 Aug 2012 18:01:55 GMT
Hi Alex,

when we get the official repo in Apache we'd not need to have github, but
if you use it or not it would not be important. Git is "distributed" so
unlike SVN you always have a "distributed" full repo. The one at apache
will be the so called "origin" and well all flows will converge, but the
one in my local machine will be another full repo (when is full synced) and
the fork at github as well be valid...

But...although we don't need github, I must say that many people would like
to use due to it's "pull request" feature, that , as other said is not in
git and only available in github. Pull request is what make github so
social, since nobody has any responsabilities. you only develop and share
through pull request and if you (PPMC with full write access to the forked
official repo) like the pull request you can integrate into the official
repo. Github makes that extremely easy and funny and for that reason is why
it's model is a big success in open source and all people wants to use it.
