Yes, review board does integrate with git pretty well. As of now, there is a repo called flume-git on review board which you need to select to submit a git generated patch. In fact, if we use git, we don't need to select the base folder etc(as we do for an svn patch), simply uploading the patch is enough.

Does the review tool integrate with git? By that I mean will patches still need to be added to the review tool or is it capable of figuring out the differences on its own if the enhancement/fix is on a "branch" (or fork or whatever it is that git calls it). If so, this would make RTC much more user friendly.

Apache infra is now allowing projects to choose git as the primary source control, if the project community choose so. I have been using git svn for commits and git to maintain my repo, but recently there have been issues with the git-svn sync (earlier git mirror had substantial delays - but now it looks like it is missing commits).
I would like to know how many of you would be interested in such a move, to host Flume as wip git repo at Apache. Please note that this is not meant to be a comparison of git and svn, this is just a discussion to gauge the community's interest in using git as the primary source control.
Also, please note that I have not communicated this with ASF Infra about this, and I am not exactly sure how the move would work. I will work on that if there is sufficient interest within the community.
