Re: [NOTICE] Mandatory relocation of Apache git repositories on git-wip-us.apache.org


Brooklyn team,

Apart from myself, I don't think anyone has clearly come out in favour or
opposed to this. I'd rather we got consensus and moved to gitbox early - so
that if some people do object, we have time to work out the objections with
infra, before we are involuntarily moved.

Thoughts, anyone? Does this need a formal vote to get people responding?

Richard.
