Transfer an existing Git repository to an ASF project

  1. An Officer of the ASF, who could be the chair of a project PMC, requests the transfer via a Jira ticket. Infra can double-check that the Officer has performed due diligence to make sure the repository contents are available for transfer: for instance, that none of its files are subject to licenses that conflict with the ASF license. However, it is not Infra's job to perform that investigation.
  2. Infra performs the transfer in the normal way, recording details in the Jira ticket, and markets the ticket as complete once the Officer confirms they can access the repo in its new location.
