Moving to Github is not allowed. See dev@community and board@ for 
discussions and details. Other than an experiment with Whimsy, ASF source 
control systems (either SVN or GIT-WIP) must remain the canonical source

Moving to Git is possible, and Tika has just done so. Needs documentation, 
and guideance, again dev@community probably the best place to ask for 
advice on that
