I /believe/ such mock conversions had been done, based on previous threads here, tho NOT on the SCM-migration list, which would certainly have the greater detail. AFAIK the previous sticking points were all those still-open bugs, not the general conversion. But the bugs, other than documentation, either seem mostly fixed or not so important, any more. Of course, those previous trial runs are probably similarly dated, now, so a new one's probably in order with the new perspective on those bug priorities, etc, but at least getting the input of someone that was involved with them should speed progress over some already covered ground, in any case. (I've considered following scmm myself, but there's apparently some sort of issue between gmane, pan, and lists commonly crossposted between, that has already killed project for me, header-fetch does nothing, and scmm would almost certainly be similarly dead to me.) -- Duncan - List replies preferred.
