Subject Re: Release 3.0
Date Thu, 03 Sep 2015 18:18:05 GMT
Spinning off a 2.2.2 modularization effort to me sounds like it could
create some confusion and undermine the 3.0 release.  I'd rather focus the
modularization effort into 3.0.  Modularization is a huge pain and the
payoff is long term.  Rather not pay it twice.

Yes. Big ant projects with checked in binaries.  Exactly that model.

We are managing to keep evolution running in parallel with modularization.

One thing that made life easier was switching from SVN to git.  This made
the merges much easier to manage.

Although a recent git convert, I would be very much in favor of switching
to git for river (after a release).
