Subject Re: Git to SVN
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2011 18:07:34 GMT
cross-posting to incubator in case someone there also had to go through the
git to svn migration and can share their experience.

Is there a process we can follow to put s4 in the beta git program? I know
this can create additional work for the infra folks but seems we may
already have a beta system perhaps we can just try it and help improve it.
We all benefit.
