This page documents how to go about getting a KDE module ready for the Great Git Migration of 2010.
Getting the tools
The necessary tools are hosted at http://www.gitorious.org/svn2git. To get started do:
This will get you the source code to build svn2git and the KDE ruleset files as they currently exist. Build the svn2git tool before moving on to the next step.
Make sure you have Qt4 installed, then simply issue qmake && make to build the executable called "svn-all-fast-export"
How rulesets work
Setting up your system
You will need ~60GB (is that correct?) of disk space to get started, as the process requires a copy of the KDE svn database. There is a script that will download this for you (and which can be used to update it periodically using rsync) in kde-ruleset/bin/startSync. By default the startSync script runs rsync in "dry run" mode, so before using it to actually get the svn database edit the startSync script and remove the -n from both rsync lines.
