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.
indeed it is. there are of course other hosting providers but github
is the slickest and most widely known. their recent round of fundign
means they probaly arnt going anywhere any time soon and they were
already self funding anyway.
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 :)
github with its pull requests does at least lower the barrier to
entry of trying to provide patches.
Don't forget about the auxillary stuff in the
current subversion repo;
some of that at least will need to stay in subversion.
i had only intended to do the main code base for the time being. The
other bits indeed will have to be looked at in due course.
If the 3 of us are in agreement I suggest I carry on with switching
I have some test fixes to commit; I assume that svn is still the right
place to go for now?
