Subject Re: svn instead of github?
Date Thu, 10 Dec 2009 04:24:15 GMT
For contributors, the workflow described at
http://www.apache.org/dev/git.html#workflow works pretty well. If you
create patches with "git diff --no-prefix" then committers can apply
them to the svn tree using 'patch'. This is the way we do it for
Hadoop, at least.

Cheers,
Tom
