[DISCUSS] Apache Gitbox

Aldrin Piri
Hey folks,

I saw mention on the Incubator general mailing list about Gitbox [1].  From
that message it seems like it would help considerably with some of the
maintenance tasks we perform on the repository.  Has anyone in the
community used it on another project and have any opinions on it?

Doing some searching, I was able to find some discussion from the Accumulo
project [2].

With my very basic understanding of the service, it seems like it would be
a welcomed bit of functionality.

Is this something we think is worth exploring further and enabling on our
repositories?

We migrated Apache OpenNLP to gitbox (beginning of July) and even had a
release immediately.

Yes, the PR commit workflow is lot simpler now with gitbox (just a button
click).

I would definitely recommend moving Nifi to gitbox, if anything it makes a
committer's life lot easier.


Before Gitbox, this is how PRs were merged:

 http://mahout.apache.org/developers/github.html

After Gitbox, this is how it will be:

http://opennlp.apache.org/using-git.html

Also from OpenNLP -- yes, the workflow is much simpler and faster. I highly
recommend it.

+1, I meant to bring this up after I saw the conversation on the Apache Streams list. Seems like a great improvement to the workflow!

I'm a strong +0. I don't think think it is a huge step forward, but it
isn't a step back either.

Worth considering, this twitter post has been circulating the blogosphere:
https://twitter.com/agentdero/status/889582259522736128

I'd like to ensure we don't forget other means of providing patches
(attaching a patch to a ticket). While github is convenient to some, using
it as the sole source of providing contributions may be off-putting to some.

Re: [DISCUSS] Apache Gitbox

Andy LoPresto-2
I don’t think enabling this feature requires contributors to provide patches via GitHub, as attaching patches to the Jira is still available. I see this improving the workflow for the committers who are reviewing and merging PRs. Encapsulating some of the repetitive git invocations that committers need to execute with a one-click solution (which is only triggered after the normal review process is followed) seems like a substantial improvement to me.

Re: [DISCUSS] Apache Gitbox

Aldrin Piri
In reply to this post by trkurc
Certainly can appreciate that sentiment, Tony.  I have a pretty good flow
doing reviews that kind of abstracts away the fact that it is a PR versus
just another branch/remote.  However, when it comes to code reviews, the
vast majority of my effort happens in GitHub at the moment.  I believe
there are some facilities in ASF to do this, but nothing that has quite the
same integration.

My primary interest, which I think this provides, is the ability to close
out PRs.  It's fairly minor, but having to reach out to the contributor
when I forget the magical incantation or providing empty commits that do so
for PRs that are no longer valid would be a nice bit of functionality, in
my view.
