Hi Flavio,

We'll surely have to agree on what workflow to follow exactly, if our 
proposal is accepted.

In the meantime, here is how I foresee, with git, the equivalent 
workflow for submitting patches. As you can see, the result is similar 
to the current svn workflow, because in the end, consensus must be reached :

- apache's git repository is the "blessed repository"

- developers work on their own public forks

- we follow an "Integration-Manager Workflow" as described here , "integration managers" being 
developers with commit access.

- svn patches are replaced by pull requests or git patches. (Actually, 
it may have to be a patch file in order to grant rights to the ASF)

- consensus must be reached on pull requests or git patches before they 
get integrated
