Review request for Aurora, John Sirois and Zameer Manji.

Repository: aurora


This is in response to the e-mail below regarding git server-side policy 
enforcement rendering `rel/` tags immutable.

Greeting PMCs:
(bcc to p...@apache.org)

Following direction from the Board, Infrastructure has modified git to
permit force pushes, and branch/tag deletion.

In accordance with the guidance that the Board we've implemented a few
changes you should be aware of:

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 similar.)

If you have questions, please feel free to email infrastruct...@apache.org

on behalf of Apache Infrastructure
