I like the idea, +1 from me

Agreed, "scm" is a bad choice.

So that's a great chance for all of us to prove we can do better this
time. We have at least two more names in the pool:

VCS = version control system/software
RCS = revision control system/software

The former seems more common to me though the second seems prefered in
wikipedia:
- "Version_control" forwards to "Revision control"
- "Comparison of revision control software"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_revision_control_software

I'd still propose "dev-vcs", unless someone spots something bad about it.

Hi,

So it is really tracked in
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=56967 now. If there is
anything to comment do it there. Anyone can start moving the packages
over properly to dev-vcs (with profiles/updates entries of course), just
make it know somehow when you are working on packages not maintained by
you.

Is that a good idea?
Maybe we should restrict the bug to status updates on moving and keep
discussions on here?

There seems to be a lot more to it:
- Updating eclasses?
- Updating documentation
- Updating reverse dependencies?
- Pushing news out to Gentoo users (and developers)
- Update package names used in Layman (my task)
- <more here>

What else can you think of?

Maybe make a new thread "dev-vcs migration roadmap" from here?

This is a good list, but it seems much easier to keep track of such a
list in a bug.

Cheers,

I don't expect too many discussions.

That is the normal procedure when pkgmoving a package. So nothing
special.

A simple grep for dev-util/ should be sufficient.

For what? pkgmove should handle that.

Yes.

> What else can you think of?

At the moment, nothing.

I'm a bit worried because I assume that moving packages is not an
everyday action for most developers.

For the cases where being told works better than finding out yourself
the hard way. I haven't thought to an end what cases that will be.
