Subject Re: [VOTE] Graduation of Apache Spark from the Incubator
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2014 18:29:28 GMT
Hi Craig,

I am one of the mentors for Spark podling.

Currently the Spark operates via the ASF Github mirror to do review
and commit requests.
The podling uses the Github pull requests mechanism, please see how to
contribute page [1]

By definition ASF committers are people who CAN commit code to the
repository and since currently the Spark podling uses Github Pull
Request flow that allow committers to push to his/her own forked repo
and allow other people to merge the code to Spark ASF git repository.
However, there a mechanism to preserve the actual commit comment and
credit to the original individual whom commit the code to his/her own
copy of the source repository.
>From traditional code commit like with SVN the flow seem to make them
like "outsider" but they have been contributing to the podling with
the knowledge and participations as committers

Love to chat or explain more to you about it if you need more clarification.

Hope this helps to ease your concern about Spark podling readiness to
become TLP.


Thanks,

Henry

is supposed to be part of the initial activities, not a graduation exercise.
