RFC: hosted VCS changes, do we offer that as a service?
 
I noticed three hosted tickets this afternoon (2466, 2369, and 1661)
that involve VCS changes.

I started looking into accomplishing the svn moves and I wonder if
this is a service we offer, or if we suggest that they prepare their
repository themselves, and we merely make an empty git repo available.

At least with the svn-to-git, it requires creating a list of users of
all users who have committed to the svn repo, so that git log is
properly populated. While not terribly hard, it can be a lot of time
to track down users (at least one of the respositories existed prior
to living on fh.o, so there isn't a one to one mapping of fas names,)
This strikes me as best done by those who know the repo rather than
people who administer the service.

I propose that we inform the users that they can make the change, and
we'll give them a new repo of whatever type, but that we don't
actually do the conversion ourselves. The only potential issue I see
with this is the potential for commits to to be made to the old VCS
before conversion is complete.

Thoughts, comments, flames?

Sounds quite reasonable to me. ;)

We advertise that we do imports from other SCM's (which could consist
simply of checking it out and doing an initial commit, or something
more complicated). While we've never really been in the business of
doing SCM conversions per se, I'll help folks along if they need it.

Well the issue for me wasn't whether it was possible (I actually have
a SOP on doing the SVN -> git process 3/4 done.) but after I fleshed
out the level of work, and what it actually consisted of, and that I
was able to do it all locally, I wondered if we should be shouldering
the responsibility of doing this work.
