14 As stated in previous emails, I absolutely support our use of Github as a
15 mirror only and allowing our users a familiar and easy way to contribute.
16 This has beared fruit in the form of new developers as well. I cannot
17 empirically prove it, but I would suggest that the current uptick in new
18 developers is due to Github providing a platform for them to contribute.
20 Regarding the events that occured, I think this is a lesson learned. While
21 embarrasing for our distro it was not impacting at a code level due to the
22 deployment model (mirror only). Many individuals have begun addressing the
23 areas that could be improved to ensure it does not happen again.
