Re: [eigen] git

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]


There are two important issues for KDE switching to a dvcs, which are not 
currently solved by either mercurial or git (how to do atomic commit spanning 
several different repositories, and how to ensure authentication with a a 
dvcs). They clearly are geared toward git (Thiago has experience, he did the 
svn->git migration at Trolltech i think), but those issues are blockers. I 
tried to find a solution using mercurial, but i'm not satisfied with it yet.

That's why I don't see KDE moving to git (or anything else) soon. Thiago has 
some scripts, but they only do the conversion (which is probably not that 
hard, only it takes time because KDE is huge).
