Git migration?
 
Hello everyone,

I and maybe also some other people would be interested in the status of the
infamous "git migration" of the main portage tree... I am just curious, since
I have not heard much lately- is anything happening there, are we talking
about months, years or never for getting out of the vcs stone age? :)

I know that there is a tracker bug [1], but that one and its blockers have not
seen much action lately (or ever). Also, browsing through the blockers, my
personal impression is that at least several of them are actually
enhancements, not really requirements...

Any news?

Cheers,
Andreas

I'd say this is of enough general interest, and the relevant people are for sure also subscribed here...

Andreas,

While what you say is likely true, what occurs with your request is
fragmentation of the information. That said, I think the majority of
the information you seek is available in the gentoo-scm archives. From
what I know about this, I think the issue is time and the ancillary
utilities, like repoman, that will need to be updated. Beyond that
documentation is required.

See this thread for more info.

I know we are all pretty excited to migrate to git, but there is
little reason to rush something this monumental. It seems far better
to take the time to get it absolutely correct, technically (the best
kind), the first time.

I am certain, in any case, that your interest and involvement in this
effort would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Matthew
