Good to know that. I thought they are nice, open source believers with full of respect...

I see, good to know that it's (probably) neither git-svn nor svn fault. As you probably already

know, I keep my fingers crossed for all of your effort.

Yep, that's been only the first try. Next time I'll use this flag, no doubt.

Really good to hear that!

I understand the attention you pay to establishing some rules here. I would just go with simple

option of allowing committers to perform full cloning of their favorite projects but ask them
rather keep their copies private. This is only to not cause any false impression that ASF
switching to Git or people can work-around standard procedure of supplying their patches to
The procedures we have now should stay in place and usage of git-svn should be allowed as
_additional_ option compatible with standard svn usage, IMHO.

Even though I quite like Git I don't want to force anyone from my project to learn Git or
understand how Git works. I want to stay as transparent as possible therefore I see plans
involving Git in patches consumption as rather premature.

PS. Joe, I enjoy your posts full of concretes that make twenty of earlier, heated posts irrelevant.
