Subject Updates on Git Status
Date Tue, 02 Feb 2016 08:10:03 GMT
Hello All,
   Infra has recently announced some changes relating to Git repos. Please do note.

Excerpt from Infra communication:

First, If a forced commit is pushed, the subsequent commit email will contain '[Forced Update!]'
in the subject line. The hope here is that it draws extra attention to the situation for a
project community to be aware, and take appropriate action if needed.

Second, we've changed the 'protected' portions of git to primarily focus on refs/tags/rel
- thus any tags under rel, will have their entire commit history. This provides the provenance
that the ASF needs for releases, while still giving projects the ability to mold their repository
in the way they see fit.

Thus when a release vote is successful - part of the release process should become tagging
the voted upon commit SHA under rel/ to make it indelible. ('# git tag rel/v15.4.2 ' or something
