Subject [NOTICE / DISCUSS] migrating Git repositories to gitbox.apache.org
Date Mon, 10 Dec 2018 16:10:10 GMT
Hi Folks,

Per the below mail sent by the ASF Infrastructure team (to dev@), our Git
repositories will be migrated from the original/old git-wip-us service on to
the newer gitbox.apache.org service by February 7th.

This is definitely happening, but we have some say over when/how it does:
1. Document consensus on list and voluntarily request to move by Jan 9th.
2. Wait for mandated move between Jan 9th and Feb 6th, coordinate with infra
   to proceed once it has been.
3. Do nothing, ignore the mandate, and be forcibly moved on Feb 7th.

I'm in favour of volunteering and doing it sooner than later, so to
that end here is my lazy consensus statement:

Unless there is discussion here resulting in decision to delay, I will
raise the migration request JIRA with Infra on Thursday 13th Dec,
hopefully allowing completion of the process by the end of this week
if they have bandwidth to do so.
