This page documents the steps to follow for moving a module from KDE's subversion repository to gitorious.org.
- Write a ruleset for the module and make sure the git repository has all necessary history in it. See the Using Svn2Git page for more information about this step.
- Find a sysadmin who can shut down write access to all places in svn that belong to the module. This is needed so that a final rsync will contain all current history for the module and you don't miss any commit.
- Execute the conversion to create a local git repository
- Create a project (if there's no existing one that fits yet) and a git repository on gitorious.org via its webinterface.
- Create a <module>-reviewers group with the review permission set for the git repository
- Create a <module>-maintainers group (or invite admin users individually)
- Give the kde-developers group commit permissions so that any KDE developer can easily collaborate on the module
- The kde-sysadmins needs to be added too with admin rights, so they can help with tagging and general administration (setting up hooks etc.)
- Add the new remote repository to your local one as new remote, then push all local branches and tags to the remote repository.
- Scripty needs to be pointed to the new place of the module, you can send the kde-i18n-doc mailinglist a note and it should be taken care of.
- Clean up subversion, this means either leaving a single README file instead of the original content of the module, or removing the path completely
- Point EBN to the new place of the module: Contact Allen Winter.
- Point LXR to the new place of the module: Contact KDE's sysadmins.
- Adjust the developer information on www.kde.org
Thats it. More information on the permissions and post-hook scripts (for BUG:, CCMAIL: etc) can be found on the KDE on Git page.
