Apache Camel first commit was 10 years ago on March 19th

Today marks a very special day as it was exactly 10 years ago the first commit of Apache Camel was done by its creator James Strachan.

Added Mon Mar 19 10:54:57 2007 UTC (10 years ago) by jstrachan
Initial checkin of Camel routing library

The project was created as a sub-project to Apache ActiveMQ and back then github did not exists, so its using good old subversion.

In summer 2007 the first release of Apache Camel was published, which happened on July 2nd so lets wait until the summer to celebrate it's 10 years birthday.

Hey Claus, any reason you guys haven't migrated to Git / Github yet?

Claus Ibsen said...

Apache Camel is on github at: https://github.com/apache/camel/

I'm assuming that's a mirror and if I want to commit I'd need access to the other repo, right?

Yes its a mirrored as all ASF projects is hosted on ASF hardware and software to ensures its independence.

You can create and contribute PRs on github as many users do.
Only committers can commit directly, as any projects would do.
