Re: [eclipselink-dev] PLEASE READ: GIT

Hi All,


Just following up on Peter’s email to remind you that the EclipseLink SVN repository will be locked EOB Friday, pending transition to the new Git repository.  SVN will continue to be available in read-only mode after that.


To enable as smooth a transition as possible, please hold off on any non-essential commits after EOB Thursday, as we would like to keep the builds stable through-out this transition period. 


July 12th – complete regular check-ins to SVN

July 13th - final check ins to SVN.  Please hold off on any non-essential check-ins on this day.
July 16th - Git repo will be online.

Hi All,

As you all know, we are getting close to migrating to Git, and we have schedule, and are starting to work out what this all will mean.The current plan is that we will start using Git on July 16th.  What does this mean?  Well, in a perfect world it would mean that you would do your last SVN checkin on the 13th of July and then start using Git seamlessly the next monday.  I don't expect that to happen, but we are going to try and make things as painless as possible.

They are still some unknowns at this point, but what we are going to try to do at this point is something like this:

NOW - get tools needed for Git development, and start playing around with our sample repo (Eric can you send info on hwo to connect to that repo?) 
July 13th - final check ins to SVN.  Note - any open TXNS after friday will have to be checked into GIT.
July 16th - Git repo will be online, and we will likely be working out kinks for a few days at that point. 

I know that some of you have been experimenting with GIT already, and will be able to help others.  Let's try to share knowledge to make this migration less painful...
