Re: [] [qvto-dev] Decontainerizing GIT repos

Hi All,

I guess I'm late and I'm OK with the change but:

IMO, the benefits of the change are little in comparison with the bad consequences of it: unnecessary clients annoyance. 

If It were my decision I'd only do the change if symlinks worked, that is, if clients working against the old GIT repo URL are not impacted with the change (I think it should be the case).

P.S: I'll also do an announcement in the forum.

Given the unqualified enthusiasm, let's go for it and hope the GitHub hit doesn't last too long. raised.

NB. Hudson jobs have a reference to the repo in their Configuration.

(See for a very simple reconfig of the QVTd jobs.)

I also vote for moving GIT repos naming to the current style.
It would be great if symlinks work. Even in case they won't I think it's good time to switch to new GIT naming.

I think we should change the names to the current style. Will the name change force users to change (i.e. get a "invalid repository" error) or will we need to post the new names through the wiki and mailing lists?

The symlink could be use temporally as a solution... although there is nothing more permanent than a temporal solution ...

If we don't change there will come a time when the ancient names become a significant confusion.

If we change, all users must correct their GIT connection details, and GitHub may break. It took over six months for QVTd to recover from the m2m/mmt name change, but maybe the GitHub problems have finally been resolved. (

Do we want to change? If so, shall we use QVTd as a path finder to see how long GitHub takes to catch up?

Maybe we can have a symlink for old accesses.
