Subject Re: Rushing into Git

Hi Erik,

let's see how infra respond to the ticket generated (Please all vote to make
it happen)

Sincerily, this migration should be supported by Apache since is what
people in this project wants and infra is about to ease things to make code

My main task here right now is make it happen, and I will spend lots of
cycles chasing this ticket with infra. I will make as much as I can since I
see this a smart movement for this project since it will imply make it more
social and modern. For me SCM is critical in this project and SVN is a tool
of the past that only hampers the project.

I'd want to be in a more positive mind about Infra's thinking and that they
are the support part in this foundation. They can have certain problems and
lack of resources to make this happen since other thinking will be really
very bad to what Apache represents.

For me the fact is that there's lots of projects in Git right now as you
could see in [1] and others projects was successful making the same steps
we are doing.


My advice is that we don't loose time discussing it and let's see how
things evolve with that infra ticket, and see if they stablish
communitcation to give us feedback of the next steps. We should have into
account that we have a move out of incubation and that should be a great
point in time to make the switch.
