ASF Writable Git Services

This service,, provides Apache projects with a two-master setup of git repositories, allowing committers to utilize two different avenues of committing code to the Apache Software Foundation; through GitHub or through the ASF. All 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 either or may do so by filing a JIRA ticket with infra.

Once set up, people who have linked their accounts via the account linking page will be granted write-access on both services (gitbox and github). People that do not wish to utilize GitHub may continue using thier ASF credentials to push code to - we do not mandate use of one of the other. Account authorization on GitHub typically happens within an hour of linking accounts.

Our available services:

Active Git repositories, original or mirrored from active GitHub repositories

Link GitHub and ASF accounts (required to push to GitHub)

Create a new GitBox/GitHub repository
