Moving from Subversion to Git

Submitted by dag on Mon, 2011/04/11 - 20:40

Sometimes it's good to have someone basically forcing you to make time to improve a lingering situation. Subversion was a long time a bottleneck (literally in I/O, and figuratively in collaboration) in RPMforge. I also had been using our public Subversion infrastructure for some unrelated Open Source projects.

So thanks to Yury V. Zaytsev (!) we are finally undertaking the migration to Github infrastructure. This will also mark the beginning of the project's name translation from RPMforge to RepoForge.

So let me announce the migration of Dstat, Dconf, mrepo, unoconv, sarah and DAR to a new location:

being optimistic as I am, I expect a few pull requests this evening. Just so I learn how to deal with it ;-)

Has there been a formal announcement about this name change?

Dag,

Has there been a formal announcement about this name change? I could see this leading to some confusion about this, and word from the RPMforge leads would help to clarify this.

If there is such an announcement, can you provide the URL?

From this blog post and the following links, I can infer that a name change has happened, but I am looking for something more authoritative:

* http://lists.repoforge.org/pipermail/users/2011-June/022192.html
* http://lists.repoforge.org/pipermail/users/2011-June/022199.html
* http://repoforge.org/faq/ (Assuming I trust what they say).

Thanks again for all of the hard work. It is appreciated.

What happened to the packages?

Hi Dag,

What happened to the actual package downloads in rpmforge? I'm looking for the source of the dansguardian package, it doesn't seem to be on your site, repoforge.org says nothing helpful, basically this looks like a major step backwards at the moment! Please tell us where to find the packages?

Cheers, Chris.
