Those concerns have been expressed before, during, and after the vote. It
obviously did not deter either the community or the PPMC.

By this logic Infra would be unenthusiastic about any request from Infra.
Their lack of movement stems from a lack of human resources, we are all
volunteers here, and lack of extra support on the Git side. The mere fact
that they are asking for more volunteers on the Git admin from shows their
interest in moving this initiative forward.

Moving to Git would entail a separate request from Infra, which has nothing
to do with the IPMC, the group that would be approving our graduation. The
worst that could happen is Infra denies our request for read/write apache
Git repo. We would never be "on our own" however as its the role of Apache
Infra to support Apache projects. I would not be so concerned.
