Re: [p2-dev] p2CUDF in its own repository

The idea by creating a non incubating repo is that the parties interested in the code will take it from the incubating status into a production ready one.

You can make as many repositories as you'd like in with a project. Divide the repositories up as much as you'd like (as much as makes sense for you and the community). Having the functionality in a separate repository in the incubator will certainly make it much easier to move to the proper project when the time comes. Separating different functional/experimental areas into separate Git repositories makes a lot of sense to me. YMMV.

If somebody wants to use incubating code in production, that's their choice. The incubation flag is your warning to the community; they may choose to ignore those warnings.

My outsider opinion is that moving this functionality into a separate repository is a net win if you can turn the adopters into contributors/committers.

There is of course a matter of repo size, but more importantly is the fact that the code is in an incubation repository where they want to use it in production.

No problem here, but is the issue that the incubator repository (I assume it's a single repo) is too large / complex?  If so, then moving it to the p2 repo won't help much (as you said) :-).

Thanks for your interest in p2CUDF. Moving it out of where it is located should not be too much of an issue. 
I will discuss with the others if they prefer having the code moved into a specific git repo or merged with the existing p2 repo, and will check with the foundation if any process needs to be followed.
For the repo structure, given how large the p2 repository is (both in size and number of projects) I'm in favour of creating a specific repo. Ian, Tom, any problems with that?

For an open-source project named DORM, we would like to use the library p2cudf from the incubation repository. 
It would be great for this project to be hosted in its own repository git or svn so we could easily use it and maybe contribute to it.

Thanks in advance!
