Your response confuses me.

"3. pull into trunk only from upstream"

Do you mean a local branch "trunk", and coming from apache?

"... and push to github"

What; you can push to github's mirror?  I thought it was read-only?

And do you mind telling me/us how you take a change you commit to trunk and
back-port to 4x (assuming no conflicts) with git?  With svn it involves an
"svn merge" on 4x referencing my commit revision on trunk.  I know my
question is academic for normal git but this git svn double-mirror setup is

Any way... seeing you guys use git as committers is encouraging as I thought
the git side simply is too 2nd class citizen for Lucene/Solr to be effective
for committers.  Guess not.  I'll have to do what Simon's doing.  Woohoo! 
Hopefully it's okay to post git patches to JIRA instead of subversions's;
I've heard of incompatibility issues but if it's my issue then I'm the one
committing any way so I guess it won't usually be a problem.
