Subject Re: Missing git history

Hey Vishwas,


The repackeging led to a delete and add of all files anyways, so a simple fetch merge could
cause more harm than the creation of a new fork and manually transfer made changes to the
code that never where contributed back.


In addition I'd suggest to do future code enhancements in a way that allows either a contribution
back or keeps the forked base clean and mergable.


Best,


Markus

Subject: Missing git history

To: dev@fineract.incubator.apache.org



Hi, 


https://github.com/apache/incubator-fineract doesn't carry over the commit 

history from https://github.com/openMF/mifosx. 


Given that the MifosX platform has been around for a few years now, 

numerous organizations maintain multiple forks of the same . Without the 

commit history being carried over, upgrading these forks becomes an 

unnecessarily painful process. 


Also, the contribution history of around 78 volunteers to the original 

MifosX project is lost. 


Is there any reason for initializing fineract as a new git repository ? 


Regards, 

Vishwas
