Just following up on Peterâs email to
remind you that the EclipseLink SVN repository will be
locked EOB Friday, pending transition to the new Git
repository.Â 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.Â
12th â complete regular check-ins to SVN
13th - final check ins to SVN.Â Please hold off on
any non-essential check-ins on this day.
July 16th - Git repo will be online.Â

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.Â What does this mean?Â 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.Â 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?)Â
ÂÂ --Â http://wiki.eclipse.org/EclipseLink/Development/Process/Git
July 13th - final check ins to SVN.Â 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.Â
I know that some of you have been experimenting with GIT
already, and will be able to help others.Â Let's try to
share knowledge to make this migration less painful...
