Subject [jira] [Created] (LEGAL-478) Releases when working with git (gitbox/GitHub)
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2019 18:57:00 GMT
Richard Eckart de Castilho created LEGAL-478:

             Summary: Releases when working with git (gitbox/GitHub)
                 Key: LEGAL-478
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-478
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
          Components: Policy Question
            Reporter: Richard Eckart de Castilho

There is an apparently outdated (it says in its title that it refers to the "experimental
writable git repos" which are no longer experimental) page here


which says that

* The ASF repo must be the canonical master repo that all committers push changes to.
* ASF releases must be cut from the canonical ASF Git repositories.

The current page appears to be https://gitbox.apache.org - and it says

* This service, gitbox.apache.org, provides Apache projects with a two-master setup of git
repositories, allowing committers to utilize two different avenues of committing code to the
Apache Software Foundation; through GitHub or through the ASF.
* People that do not wish to utilize GitHub may continue using thier ASF credentials to push
code to gitbox.apache.org - we do not mandate use of one of the other.

So if the info on https://gitbox.apache.org supersedes the http://apache.org/dev/writable-git,
then I interpret that as:

* push where you want  (through GitHub or ASF since they are synched)
* when you release, clone and push also where you want (through GitHub or ASF since they are

Is that correct?

If yes, would it be feasible to remove the outdated page along with the document explaining
why pushes must go through the ASF repo (http://www.sunstarsys.com/essays/git-and-non-repudiation)
to avoid confusion?
