Ok, so enough folk were bugging me about SCM migrations, that I just
decided to follow what other projects had done, and create a list for
discussing the migration.
Donnie had a list of everybody that's been interested in the subject,
and I've subscribed all of you.
Most of this mail is a braindump, feel free to pick bits up and start
Other large projects that have either had or are conducting the
discussions about switching SCMs
- Ruby on Rails
- GHC (Haskell)
Know of any more?
Tool to help Gentoo users move:
- git-cvsserver (with RW patches)
- cvs2svn looks best as it's easy to customize into doing what we want
it to (Python).
Doing more test migrations, and having a test-plan for comparing them
directly, as well as against other SCMs.
