Hi Paul,

could you please give a little bit more insight about the current roadmap and 
status of GIT for the ASF? There has been no update on this subject since 
april and working is done on this subject since 10 months now. On februar 10th 
you sounded like GIT support would be almost ready.[1]

On the other hand, Jukka Zittig, Mark Struberg and me have been supporting an 
existing solution[2], that is already used in production since at least a year 
at the Android project, the Eclipse Foundation, eBay, Intel, Red Hat, SAP AG 
and several others. The Android and Eclipse projects have the same legal 
requirements then the ASF.

I've never received any answer, why the ASF could not use a turn-key ready, 
production proved and feature complete solution and rather prefers to build 
it's own duck tape scripts.

Please, without any bad feelings, could somebody give me an answer, why Gerrit 
doesn't even get considered? I'm afraid that once any GIT hosting solution has 
been deployed at the ASF, it'll be there to stay, even if a much better 
solution exists. I've written last week (without response) how time consuming 
the current commit process at the ASF is:
