gitbox.apache.org, provides Apache projects with a two-master setup of Git repositories so committers can use two different ways to commit code to the Apache Software Foundation: through GitHub or through the ASF. All Apache repositories present on GitBox are available on GitHub with write-access enabled, including rights to open/close/merge pull requests and address issues.
Projects wishing to move their repositories from svn.apache.org to Git may do so by filing a Jira ticket with Infra.
Once you set up GitBox and have linked your accounts via the account linking page, you have write-access on both services (GitBox and GitHub). People who do not wish to use GitHub may continue using their ASF credentials to push code to `gitbox.apache.org` - we do not mandate use of one or the other. Account authorization on GitHub typically happens within an hour of linking accounts.
