Re: [ecf-dev] Turn off CVS

How will turning it off affect people's ability to reproduce old ECF versions with bug fixes?

The strategy we have used in the past when moving things is to version in CVS, then clean out the project contents leaving a readme.txt pointing to the new location.  This way all the old stuff is still there in its original form but people are not confused by getting stale content.

So i think it would be better to turn it off, and have a direct connection to the git repository from the webpage/wiki. With the examples you never directly see if there aren't the current releases there any more.
