Subject Re: [DISCUSS] OpenWhisk Proposal
Date Sun, 06 Nov 2016 02:16:26 GMT
I spoke with Greg very briefly about the situation with OpenWhisk.  He
pointed out a couple of things to me.

- He presented essentially an either/or situation to the podling,
essentially either you can stay on your existing and wait to graduate when
ASF can handle github as master, or use what the ASF can provide as of
now.  At least this is how I understood it.

- github as master is on infra's radar, but it has no ETA at this point.
There are on going private discussions around it.  As well as the git-dual
solution.

There's an interesting twist.  It has to do with the distributed nature of
git.  While searching through documents online, there's only one place that
mentions using an ASF managed repository as the "canonical" repository.  I
mention this, mostly because in SVN and CVS days this was a non-issue, you
could check stuff out, but never have to worry about multiple copies
floating around.

Anyways, here's the doc from 4 years ago:
https://www.apache.org/dev/writable-git
I'll note that the release process docs make no such claim:
http://www.apache.org/dev/release-publishing.html

I suspect that this is a case of "the docs are out of date" and what's
there from 4 years ago is still true today.  So at this point, we would
require a policy change (from my POV) to even review a release from a
podling that was not hosted by ASF.
