Subject Getting To Git (was Re: [MENTORS] Current Branching Strategy Vote Results)
Date Thu, 16 Aug 2012 07:24:35 GMT
As you may have seen, TLF is ready for donation.  Falcon will be next week.

Given that, I think there are two "vectors" here that can be worked on in
parallel: 1) switching SVN usage to GBM and handling donations, and 2)
Getting a read/write Git repo.

It looks like there is a group of folks who are volunteering to work with
Infra so hopefully they will organize and make (2) happen.

Meanwhile, I think the rest of us can keep on using SVN.  I don't think we
need to hold off for Git.  I think the steps are:

(1) Rearrange SVN for new structure
(2) Create "develop" branch in sdk/trunk/branches
(3) Remove post-release commits from trunk and block the removal from
merging to "develop" branch.
(4) Start syncing and working from "develop" branch.
(5) Fixes to mustella go into "develop" and get synced to trunk
