Hi all,

The Eclipse CVS will be put into read-only mode by the end of the year.
All Eclipse projects that still use CVS have to move their source code
from CVS to Git.

We've now successfully finished this migration for the RAP Incubator
project [1] and plan to migrate RAP itself around 1.5M7 (May 11).

Those of you who are used to work with the source code of RAP, please be
aware that for the Incubator, there won't be any changes in the CVS
anymore, even though it is still accessible. You now have to clone the
respective git repositories [1].

Git has a lot of advantages over CVS. It will make it easier for us to
backport bugfixes to service releases and it allows everyone to have
their own offline clone of the entire repository, fork it at Github,
etc. However Git is unarguably more complex than CVS. For those who are
new to Git, the Eclipse Git wiki page [2] has some pointers to get you
started.

Regards,
Ralf

Hello,

Regarding bugs created with a patch proposal, what is your prefered way for patch delivery ? Do you prefer we clone projects in github and send a pull request ? or do you prefer a git patch attached to the bug ?

Regards,
Arnaud

Hi Arnaud,

hostly, we have almost no experience with Git patches yet. I'd say, both
is possible, it depends on the case. For a simple change, forking the
entire repository seems overkill. A patch created with EGit [1] or with
`git format-patch --no-prefix` should be fine.

Regards, Ralf
