Subject: Please migrate to git-2.eclass
Date: Fri, 24 Jun 2011 23:35:33 +0200

git-2.eclass is in the tree for a while now, and there's still awful
lot of packages using old & deprecated git.eclass.

Why migrate?
- git-2 supports fallback SRC_URIs -- you can set it to prefer git://
  but fallback to http:// if git is unreachable (e.g. due to firewall),
- git-2 is cleaner and has a better design (no more src_prepare()!),
- git-2 handles submodules better,
- git.eclass is no longer supported and will go away.

I'm attaching a list of packages still using git.eclass, grouped by
herds and maintainers.

Additional resources:
- list of packages using git.eclass [1],
- devmanual entry for git-2.eclass [2],
- an example ebuild for a git.overlays.g.o package [3],
- an example ebuild for a github package [4].


Best regards,
Michał Górny
