Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-156) Can we accept pull requests from github ?
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2013 11:18:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-156?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13554946#comment-13554946
] 

Bertrand Delacretaz commented on LEGAL-156:
-------------------------------------------

Also, just to be complete, we only want voluntary contributions, so the PMC must have evidence
that the submitter intends to contribute their code to the project. A PMC cannot go hunting
for pull requests on random forks of their repositories and commit them, but I understand
that's not the case here.

> 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 submitter.
> 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).
