Subject Re: Short summary about today's SCM BOF

after the last board meeting, I tried to pull the Velocity repo using 
git and ran into an error that pointed towards mod_dontdothat. We 
chatted briefly about this on IRC and ended up with "don't bother". It 
seems that the git-svn tries to do some operation on the parent of the 
URL it tries to pull and this is blocked by mod_dontdothat. As incubator 
projects are one level further down, this probably works for them.

I am not sure if you can loosen the restrictions by project without 
opening up the things that mod_dontdothat should prevent in the first place.

	Best regards
