Gavin commented on INFRA-8302:
------------------------------

For those where only a single folder is moving as a new repo, no need to make a new folder
for those.

> The flex-utilities repo originally came from SVN.  Being new to Git, we added other small
projects to the repo and are now realizing that we should probably just have more repos with
single projects in it.
> I opened this issue first to track what our options are, if any, in splitting the repo.
 We want to retain history for the files related to a project, but prune out files and history
that are unrelated.
> I see there is a 'git subtree split' option that requires git version 1.7.11.  One potentially
complicating factor is that at the top-level of flex-utilities are 3 or folders that we want
to move together into a single new repo.  It isn't clear that 'subtree split' supports that.
 I suppose we could 'git mv' the folders into a top-level folder first.
> We don't have the final list of what we want split yet.  We'll decide on that once we
understand our options.
> Thanks,
> -Alex
