There's really no need to use a central repository for git users, IMO,  
people should be free to choose their own publishing point. There is  
not much difference in:

git pull . pri/<somebody>/<branch> // which is equivalent to git merge  


git pull <somebodys_remote> <branch>
where <somebodys_remote> can be either be the full Git url or  
configured by: git remote add <remote> <url>

I wouldn't mind a backup in the pri/... branches though.

I think non-git users should just stick to the subversion respository,  
which should be the "official" repository for the Apache project. The  
official branches (trunk and releases) needs to be sync'ed (with git- 
svn) regularly using a post-commit hook in the "semi-official" git  
repository, which is the merge point of Git users.
