             Summary: Can we accept pull requests from github ?
                 Key: LEGAL-156
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-156
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Kristian Rosenvold

In maven, we generally require that all external submissions have JIRA issues. With svn we
would normally have patches attached to the jira issue, which would link a submission to the

With pull requests coming in from github, we receive a "submission" that is tagged with author
name and email and an external reference to the diff (a link to the commit on github). This
pull request is sent to ASF mailing lists and would IMO serve as a record of submission. Given
that the author information in the commit seems valid, can we accept such a pull request directly
? (to this moment we still require that authors add patches to jira as well)

(It would look to me like the only thing missing is that we have the process picking up the
pull requests actually attach the diff to the mail too, but heck IANAL).
