Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-249) Use GitHub issues instead of JIRA
Date Tue, 26 Apr 2016 01:55:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-249?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15257418#comment-15257418

Marvin Humphrey commented on LEGAL-249:
---------------------------------------

There are legal concerns here (in addition to the usual infra concerns about adopting new
technologies, which can be addressed elsewhere).

We need to capture the intent of the contributor to contribute in ASF-controlled channels,
so that the contributor cannot repudiate at some future date that they licensed the contribution
under appropriate terms. It cannot be that when Github goes belly up that we lose that information.

This was raised on a new project that we're beginning to incubate (Airflow). I asked INFRA,
and they suggested that I ask LEGAL as well as the board.
