Just an FYI for those unfamiliar with Git. It's possible to migrate an
existing workspace by disconnecting projects from CVS then sharing them
with the new Git repo using Eclipse EGit. The EGit plugin seems to have
handled this very well. Just be aware that this process will delete any
migrated projects from your workspace directory and point to the projects
within the local Git repo directory created when you cloned the repo. So
don't freak out. In my case, my existing projects matched the contents of
the Git projects so I don't know how the plugin handles the case when the
contents do not match.

[equinox-dev] Migrating framework CVS repo to git
I hope you are well aware of the effort to move the equinox and eclipse
projects from CVS to git (see
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=345479). We have decided to
migrate the framework and launchers first.
We plan to migrate the projects documented here (
) to a framework git repo. We have done a test migration which is located
at ssh://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/equinox/rt.equinox.framework.git. Later
today we will be tagging the projects in CVS and then do the official copy
to populate the git repository for real. Our plan is to then run a test
build tomorrow and if all goes well we will build from git in the nightly
build tomorrow night.
After this is done successfully we will move on to the other equinox work
areas and migrate them over (p2, bundles, security) in the coming weeks.
The incubator will be the last work area moved over. I think we have some
work to do to figure out what from the incubator should be included in the
incubator repository. The simple approach is to migrate everything that is
there, but that may result in a rather large incubator repository with
lots of dead code.
