But if you feeling bold, maybe it is worth questioning Infra's approach to
this.  Just be careful not to burn any bridges.

I am new to Git/GitHub, but I am wondering whether Infra considered using
its own GitHub (see [1]).  That might make provide a turnkey solution
instead of having to customize their own solution and need Python help.
Yes, it isn't free, but I think Apache worked out a deal with Atlassian/JIRA
which also isn't free.

Another angle to explore is whether it would be ok from an Apache
perspective to simply do our work on the public GitHub and only copy
released sources back to either Apache SVN or some simpler Apache Git
installation (it might be simpler if it is only taking occasional drops from
fewer people).  In our branching strategy, we do all of our work on the
develop branch which could be out in GitHub and only commit to trunk at
release time which could be the only copy of source on an Apache server.
