Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-18499) Migrate primary VCS from SVN to Git for Apache JMeter
Date Mon, 17 Jun 2019 04:39:00 GMT


Vladimir Sitnikov commented on INFRA-18499:

Can you please clarify what do you mean by provenance, and could you please clarify why do
you think we are losing it?

1) old commits will still be related to svn
2) new commits would be exactly the same diffs, and author/committer fields would be the same.
Ot top of that, there will be former-commit-id footer for new commits.

Nothing will be lost

> One of the ideas is to cleanup Git repository as a part of migration (e.g. remove accidentally
committed multi-megabyte jar files)
> Can you please clarify if that is a viable approach?
> My understanding is that it is valid to alter history (e.g. remove unrelated files) during
SVN->Git migration.
> Note: I do understand that "GitHub pull requests will need to be rebased", so the question
is more like "are there limitations on history edits during migration?"
> Current SVN:
> Desired Git:
> "git cleanup" is an automatic script:
> The result is as follows:
> As far as I understand, the process is as follows:
> * JMeter committers settle on a timeframe so they do not commit to SVN/Git repositories
> * Infra disables SVN->Git sync
