Subject RE: [Repo][Proposal] OOO340 SVN Dump file import

I think the problem with Apache extras is you get one Hg repository there and there are a bunch
over at  So some sort of merge has to happen with respect to all of those
child workspaces, etc.  

Also, if I understood the discussion so far, the SVN history was not carried into the Hg repositories?

The migration to Apache-Extras is the easy part, right?  It is just Hg
to Hg. So we maintain the complete revision history that way.

If someone has a more elegant solution, then, as always, "Patches are
