Since I sometimes lurk around infra, I'd be happy to help. However, I am not clear on what
the goals are. Is this mainly about being able to commit offline? Or is there a goal to attract
new developers with a better github experience?

Since one of the limitations of git is that you cannot clone less than the whole project,
I think we should consider splitting
into a separate repo, with tutorials under it.

I don't agree about leaving 'archive' behind in svn, unless we are sure we never want anyone
to find or work on those resources ever again. Once the main repo is moved, no-one is likely
to work on an old archive repository.

repos. The rest are somewhat stale, but we don't want it to disappear of course. I guess once
we get access to the Git repo and see if we can use subfolders for repos, we'll create a folder
called "archive" and move the remaining stuff under it. Or just keep it in SVN (which we'll
likely keep around, just like Tapestry and Wicket did).

to sign up Cayenne for Git switchover?
