Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-7524) migrate Apache Subversion project over to the git repo
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2014 15:59:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-7524?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13956684#comment-13956684

Branko Čibej commented on INFRA-7524:

Speaking off-the-record, as a downstream user of Subversion, with my WANdisco Director of
Subversion hat on: this decision, along with the recently announced git repository access
module (http://svn.apache.org/r1583639), will make our lives tremendously easier. We can finally
rip out all the hacks from our core modules that are needed to make the current sad apology
for a repository design marginally amenable to replication. Working with git repositories
is so much simpler and more robust that it's not even funny. And given that the Subversion
client is much easier to use, we're looking at a winning combination (and bigger revenues).

All I can say is, thanks guys, this will make my job fun again!

> Grrrr... vote passed. Not happy, but here we go:
> Infra: please migrate our repository at /repos/asf/subversion/ over to the Git repository
> We already have the mirror at git.apache.org. But that has always been there as a read-only
mirror (along with the copy over to GitHub). Will the git repo be at git-wip.apache.org? (is
it *still* considered -wip "work in progress"?)
> Not sure what else you guys need. Haven't exactly studied up on the migration process.
Please let me know.
