Subject Re: Git (Was: Plan for Struts 3)
Date Thu, 06 Dec 2012 11:25:54 GMT
This is an excellent question and part of the discussion I wanted to
start (but wasn't able to follow up so far in the last busy days)

Given that we decide for Git:

As for me, it makes absolutely no sense to have a common origin codebase
split up into two repositories. If we vote for developing S3 based on a
Git repository and workflow, we should move *the full* Struts 2
development to Git. Developing a new major version takes time, and we
will have to deal with a lot of commits that need to be ported from 2.x
to 3.x branch and vice versa. Having S3 in Git an S2 in subversion makes
absolutely no sense to me then.

What I don't see is moving the S1, site, maven etc. parts of our
Subversion repo. A good way to start planning for chainsawing is having
a look at our Git mirror repos at Currently there
are 5 repos:


For migrating current SVN repo content to Git, Infra prefers to
completely move an existing Git mirror repo. As I see it, we should
migrate struts2.git and arguably struts-sandbox.git and let the other
parts reside in SVN with Git morring only.
