Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-7524) migrate Apache Subversion project over to the git repo
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2014 15:57:20 GMT


Jim Jagielski commented on INFRA-7524:

~greg: OK, maybe half-cocked is one of those "emotionally charged" phrases, but the meaning
is correct. This was done without really thinking about the longer term effects, basically
the interaction of PMC and their community. The PMC is the steward of the code and the community;
The ASF and the board operates under the assumption that PMCs know their community better
than anyone else, and so that's why the board doesn't poke their noses into how PMCs operate.
That is *until* the PMCs do something that brings that assumption into question.

As I said, by handling all this via the private@ list, you have basically disengaged the community.
Maybe they agree w/ you, maybe they don't. I don't know. But, and this is key, *neither do
you*, because the PMC didn't bother to engage the larger community.

> We already have the mirror at But that has always been there as a read-only
mirror (along with the copy over to GitHub). Will the git repo be at (is
it *still* considered -wip "work in progress"?)
> Not sure what else you guys need. Haven't exactly studied up on the migration process.
Please let me know.
