I'm working on a basic plan, and I've been talking to Robin (and whoever else happens to be on #gentoo-dev at the time) about it. There's 4 main pieces that I can think of offhand: 1. Getting a reasonable backend setup that is performant for initial checkout, updates, and checkins; 2. Figuring out a workflow that makes the most sense, even if it's the same one we already have; 3. Updating utilities, mainly repoman on the dev side, and rsync scripts on the backend; and 4. A plan for the actual migration. Here's progress so far: 1. Working on it 2. Draft at <>. Thoughts? 3. Should be fairly straightforward. Patches welcome! 4. Could use some discussion. For example, do we provide backwards-compat CVS for a while, or do we just provide a git testing server for a while and switch things over all at once? -- Thanks, Donnie Donnie Berkholz Developer, Gentoo Linux Blog:
