Consider this my +1 (binding) vote for the below proposal. This vote will run
for 7 days (until 2018-03-17 15:30+00)
**Proposal**: We switch to using GitHub as our primary repo
We would still use the Apache Jira for issue/release tracking etc.
The contributors will gain write access to github.com/apache/incubator-airflow.
This would mean we would be able to:
- merge directly on github.com
- close stale issues
- be able to re-run Travis jobs (I think/hope)
Neither of these are likely to be a problem, but the possible downsides are:
- It is still possible to commit to the ASF repo, which if it happens can lead
to "split brain" (i.e. different views of master) which will need INFRA team
support to fix.
- Contributors will need to agree to Github terms of service. Given this is how
PRs are reviewed currently this isn't a problem for any current contributors.
Just worth mentioning.
If the vote passes we will need to:
- Update the airflow-pr tool to work directly on github, not ASF repos
- Update any docs that point to ASF repos
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/AIRFLOW/Committers%27+Guide - there
might be more)
- Ensure all committers have access. There is an self-serve process for this
- Open a ticket with the INFRA queue asking them to migrate the repos. (An
example of ticket from another Apache project that did this recently
Contributor set up steps:
- Go to https://id.apache.org/ and ensure you have a github username entered in
your profile. This will send an invite to join the Apache org on Github: accept
- Go to https://gitbox.apache.org/setup/ and link the accounts
These steps can be done now no matter the outcome of the vote -- we just won't
get write access to airflow unless we migrate.
