Subject Re: Apache Flex in Github
Date Fri, 17 Aug 2012 09:59:47 GMT
Hi Erik,

I understand what you say and I'm trying to give you and others as many
information as possible and to respond to questions about GIT to help get
most of us up and running with GBM and GIT, and proposing ways to overcome
the difficulties in Apache INFRA while we get full git support.

I must to say that I'm not an expert on GIT since I was a SVN user and
switch to GIT three or four months ago. At work we changed to GIT due to
the seam needs we face today in Apache Flex project: We need to change deep
changes in the core of a huge product in our company. Something that could
not be done with our classic SVN development model. We switched to GBM and
GIT with success.

So, please, feel free to ask and I'll do my best to respond to your
question in order to solve the problems you face.

I'll recomend you to enter github, make an account, make a fork from Apache
Flex mirror repository and try to make some patch and propose a pull
request of your change to PPMC.

Let me know if you have some problems.

Best,

Carlos
