Switching from SVN to GIT


Recommended Posts

Dear Froxies,


as of this months, Februrary 2011, we've switched our source repository from SVN (subversion) to GIT (http://git-scm.com/).


This arranges the repository as follows:


Anonymous read-only access is provided via git://git.froxlor.org/froxlor.git and http://git.froxlor.org/froxlor.git'>http://git.froxlor.org/froxlor.git.


The Froxlor GIT - repository may be browsed with the webinterface installed on http://git.froxlor.org


If you want to contribute, you no longer need your own branch nor svn-access. Just clone our repository, make your changes, and create a patch using git format-patch origin/master. If you want to make our lives even easier, use git send-email to directly send us your patches vie e-mail. If you want to know more, join us on IRC (irc.freenode.net/#froxlor).


Some more detailed information will be published on http://wiki.froxlor.org/doc/git these days.


That's about it for now.

Git is such a great scm because you always have a full history on your box so you can checkout without a network connection... compression is great with it as well and its fast...

Redmine is great too, been using that for a couple years....


Question... you're already running ROR with Redmine did you consider using Gitorious for the git server? It looks like you're just running git-web so are you using gitosis for the server?


Gitorious makes it simple to handle branching and merging and gives a pretty web interface to do it if desired... Alot of people compare it to GitHub but opensource so you can run it locally if you would like...


I use Gitorious for altruhost in private mode on a gentoo box... I have a pretty decent ebuild in my overlay that I wrote, some guy from Russia picked updated about a year later, and about 2 months ago I updated his version and I could supply if desired....


Anywho, this should be a very positive change!
