Subject Re: What would it take to move to Git?
Date Mon, 13 Aug 2012 22:39:02 GMT
I'm comfortable with SVN too but support the move to Git / GitHub because
it is an environment that makes work like this much more efficient. People
can easily fork the project, make a change and get it to a working state.
Then the main branch can easily patch those changes back in. It is also an
active community. There are many people that can join in, see changes and
discussions.

However, I don't know how much of GitHub's workflow we can integrate into
an ASF project.
