Re: [cdt-dev] git move plan (was: CDT 7_0_2 tag in git repo?)

When we move for real we’ll need to have a plan for how much we verify. Doing every commit of course would be impossible. But we’ll need to validate at least the last few release heads and release tags. How far back should we go? I see vendors using everything from CDT 5.0 forward. Any previous?

I wrote some python: (part of cvs2git) which will automatically compare the tip of each branch / tag between git and CVS.  Just give it the two repositories and leave it running overnight.  
This can be used to assert that the bits we care about are the same between the CVS repo and the git repo & let us know which bits don't match.

Ok, thanks for the info!


But the head of CVS is correctly contained in the git clone, right?


Who knows... AFAIK no one actually verifies that the two are the same.


I've been using the git repository and as far as my working set the clone matches the CVS HEAD. I haven't seen missing changesets. On the other hand omissions are possible like bug 332365. Please, report in bugzilla if you see any. The repository is synced once a day, I think around 1am.
