This is really easy to do. Like the manifest1 -> manifest2 migration, we'll need some kind of repository marker which indicates the manifest format. For example, we could use an entry in metadata/layout.conf for this purpose (as I've already suggested in bug #333691).

I guess the existing manifest signing technique is likely to trigger merge conflicts in the manifests. I suppose we could use another marker, similar to the thin manifest marker, to indicate that the existing manifest signing technique should not be used in the git tree. -- Thanks, Zac
