Subject Re: Apache Flex in Github
Date Fri, 17 Aug 2012 23:27:06 GMT
Hi Justin,

the point with this patch is to test the github pull request feature
(although is a valid patch, is really a trivial patch with few changes). If
this works, contribution will be very easy for all of us (non committers).
As Bertrand said in his mail contributors does not need to attach the patch
in JIRA (this is the classic apache style).

For that reason I pointed you to the link Bertrand show us (
http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/CommitPolicy), where describe the way other
apache project did it (CouchDb) with great success.

I know this could be tricky if you have no experience with Git and/or
GitHub, but we could ask other PPMC with more Git background full access to
Apache Flex GitHub Mirror and SVN Official Apache Flex repo. Maybe Michael
Labriola or Om could support us here...

Sorry, but I know all this needs and effort and don't want bother you since
all of this we all do it because we want, and maybe this github stuff is
not what you expect.
