---------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks for the quick response, [~pctony]. And my sincere appreciation towards infra working
hard to fix the mirroring service. 

I was not at all suggesting we push directly to GitHub. I was merely suggesting giving a small
set of committers push privilege so in case the mirroring service is down, we can manually
sync/mirror to avoid delay in development. It should still be consistent that GitHub is a
mirror, and in all cases we would update the ASF git first. 

Can infra reconsider this?

> It would be really, really, really helpful if ASF can grant some Spark committers push
privilege to GitHub. 
> We rely on GitHub pull request workflow for development/review, and a critical part of
the process is git mirroring. While we sincerely appreciate the work INFRA has put into the
mirroring script, we also realize that it is a non-trivial job for INFRA to keep the mirroring
feature work all the time. In the past few months, git mirroring has been consistently flaky
(see linked JIRA tickets). When mirroring is behind by hours, development activity stops and
we waste tremendous amount of time waiting for it to sync up again.
> If we can have push privilege to github, when the mirroring is flaky, a committer can
mirror the two git repos manually to resolve the issue. This will also alleviate the urgency
and workload for infra to fix mirroring.
