Hi all,

I had a meeting here with Sergey and Brecht and they proposed to allocate 2-3 weeks for them to do the svn-git migration and install a new tracker and review system on our projects site.

Such a migration of course would keep all code and tracker history. Projects site functionality should be at same level as before or better even. We're looking into Phabricator for this.

The idea is to do most of the work in the "bcon1" period (until november 3 or some days later).

Feasibility is being checked on now, a migration plannning should be proposed here before or on sunday. I've already checked with many people who commit frequently and either they'd love to move to git, or they won't object to move away from svn. I hope this will prove to be a smooth transition :)

More news following soon. The git fans can (carefully) start cheering already though ;)
