Subject Re: best development methodology for Apache git?

Hi Bertrand,

Actually that link is deprecated. We point all contributors/commiters to
the following guides:

https://wiki.apache.org/jclouds/How%20to%20Contribute
https://wiki.apache.org/jclouds/Committers%20Guide

We have a re-branding of the site in progress, and all these obsolete links
are being fixed and all documentation is being made more accessible.
We're working on it, our apologies for the confusion the old links may
cause!
