Subject Re: Make Git happen
Date Wed, 21 Nov 2012 22:22:09 GMT

although I, as all, would like the complete solution GIT-GITHUB, I'm with
you that better to win the first battle : switch from SVN to read/write
GIT. That's the basic idea and reduction of the task.

@Omar, about Python, I'll try to search the way to workaround that since I,
as you are not a Python guy. Moreover, my way of thinking is that we are
here to code and make Flex evolve, and IMO if Apache has a Infra team we
should ask for help (and help them to get the switch done), but a
requeriment of "a pyhton guy to get the task done" should not be binding to
make this movement happen. We all have to take into account that we, in the
end does not have grants or privileges on the apache hardware. We are only
users, and as committers we can help to test and get the task done, but I
don't think we could get far beyond without a real commitment by someone
behind the infra's side.

I think this is more a task to learn a lot how infra works, how they
expect, how are the real possibilities here (although that point I think we
already know a lot yet), and ask for help to make the switch, having
patience, and make a close monitoring to help this happen.

So, wish me luck! :)
