I don’t want to continue the http://forum.liquibase.org/topic/moving-source-code-to-github thread, may be ignite the interest to the theme.
I did the git svn clone from my workstation.
The full conversion process was very very tough. The jira svn server has many times rejected the pear connection and I should kick it from time to time. Second the current structure of svn repo is the broken. The removing a tag and adding same name latter cause the git-svn to aggressively search into the history the from the beginning. Additionally old versions has multiply versions of huge *.swf files, which do not accelerate the common process too.
Now I’ve finished the pushing to the github, see liquibase-CORE repo. Please look at it thoroughly whether conversion is correct or not. It contains not full history, current references to branches and tags I pushed manually. If it make sense I add another branches/tags, by your request.
I’m hope we could migrate from svn to git. The main obstacle is the JIRA issues. I did google and found git plugin for JIRA. Nathan could you please ask Attlasians’ people how to use one for our needs.
For this period of transition I can maintain the synchronization SVN => GIT, to keep the git repo fresh. It might be the github facility but I have never explored it.
If migration will be accepted I could start with CONTRIB sources.
