Apache and GitHub
The ASF has a presence on GitHub.
Can I write to repositories at GitHub?
If your project is currently hosted on Gitbox then you can push to GitHub. In order to get write access to repositories, you will need to visit our Boxer portal, which will guide you through the process of linking your ASF and GitHub accounts. The process only takes a minute or two, and will automatically grant you access to all the repositories owned by the projects you are active on.
To move to GitHub as master follow the steps below:
- Add yourself to our GitHub organization (see above) and make sure you are already a committer for the relevant project.
- Visit the GitBox site and link your GitHub account with your ASF account.
- Wait about an hour for things to sync up.
- You now have read/write access to both gitbox.apache.org and GitHub!
Projects can assign roles to people who want access to the project GitHub repositories. Each role gives a different level of access.
