Git is the future. Github is the convient place
for open source
projects to host their code.
So I propose we think about moving to github.
Very sorry for slow reply to this, especially as I specifically asked
you to post about it.
I am in favour of this plan. Git does indeed seem to be the future,
and I'm generally happy with my (limited) experience of it so far. I
would like to become more familiar with it, and using it for OpenGuides
code would be a good way to do this.
I wonder if this would also be a good opportunity to encourage people
who've contributed to OpenGuides in the past, or people who've said
they want to but haven't got around to it yet, to join in with
development? You too can gain Git experience! Or indeed share your
existing Git experience with newbies like me! I reckon there are
plenty of minor issues/improvements that we could all work on to help
us get comfortable with the new system.
Anyone else got thoughts?
I'm generally in favour of git. I am a bit reluctant to see so many eggs
being put in the github basket, but I'm probably in the minority there,
and ultimately, git's distributed nature is a defence against this.
I had toyed with the idea of setting up a hosted git repo capability on
urchin, but that probably isn't going to happen any time soon.
I am skeptical about the power of git to pull in new blood, but I'd
love to be proved wrong :)
Don't forget about the auxillary stuff in the current subversion repo;
some of that at least will need to stay in subversion.
