Subject RE: [Repo] SVN ETA? (was Re: Request for comments: Community Wiki Services web page.)
Date Wed, 10 Aug 2011 17:13:21 GMT
I think we agree we want a complete Hg (or git) on Apache Extras, so we can preserve what we
can and also so we can cherry pick anything we find that we need to draw over to the SVN repo,
to repair problems on the SVN, etc.

Greg Stein set up one project (ooo) but nothing has been moved to it: 

I'm unclear what the existence of all the Child Work Spaces does to this - I assume we only
get one Hg repo per Apache Extra Project and I don't understand the relationship among the
multiple repos used in (I've never used Git or Hg, so that is a blind spot
for me.)

[Nosing around I could find no source repositories, although release tarballs
are stated to be available.  I probably don't know where to look.] 

I'm all in favor of doing the least possible to create the Apache extra.  "While we're at
it ... " tasks tend to add too many variables in case there are problems and don't have a
history of great success.

Having a way to do further work at leisure is what I hope for.

(I see that LibreOffice has gotten down to one, but that doesn't help here and I'm not sure
what that means in any case.)

No, my knowlegde about SVN, HG and Co. is far away from being good 
enough to do such things. ;-)

But someone has written that it's on apache-extras or at least should be 
moved there, isn't it?
