Remaining issues that must be solved before the migration.

e-mail notifications

1% completed (estimate)


Owner: (Gitorious wants to fix this)

Everyone added to the kde-developers group gets an e-mail when anyone makes a merge request to any of our projects. This is undesirable (as most kde devs are not Amarok devs and many other permutations). A solution for this will have to be developed on gitorious before all of kde goes to gitorious


See response to ACL support -Mike Arthur 19/10/2009 16:09
just because someone needs commit rights to a project doesn't mean they want to listen to all merge requests for that project. also what about kwin vs plasma vs konqueror vs whatever-else in kdebase... --Chani

Method for joining the team

0% completed (estimate)


Owner: (unknown)

A button to join the kde-developers team would be very useful instead of needing to poke admins. This would probably use a similar mechanism to current method for granting svn accounts, i.e. two people vouch for a person to let them in the team.


ACL support

Owner: (unknown)

support for access control lists. from gcds: 1 project for all accounts on gitorious? sub-project membership? how should gitorious account system work


Each project needs owned by one group so the kdebase/kdepim/etc groups might work well here -Mike Arthur 19/10/2009 16:08
wait, what? why? iirc we decided everyone would be in the kde-developers group... --Chani

Account setup on Gitorious

0% completed (estimate)


How do the people get accounts on gitorious? Telling them to make one themselves puts up a big hurdle that people don't need.


Really? It just requires an email/username/password, I'd be amazed if that's a "big hurdle" for people... -Mike Arthur 19/10/2009 16:02

Commit filter is not implemented on gitorious (or something similar) though rss feeds for each module you are interested in can be subscribed to in the meantime Ian Monroe

fixed, but how does one subscribe to notices?

pre-commit hooks

0% completed (estimate)



acltest, docbook, EOL/UTF-8
a web hook isn't good enough for these because they have to run and return whether to allow the push, for every single push to every kde repo.

gitorious guys said they *might* be willing to allow a few scripts on their server for kde as a special exception, iirc. --chani
Yes, at least for basic things, heavier things like doc building would probably have to be mirrored (goes for pre/post) --johan-s

post-commit hooks

0% completed (estimate)




license header checks
gitorious is supposed to provide web hooks for this; have they started? who volunteered to write the scripts once that's done?

There is a branch of gitorious called web-hooks --Panagiotis Papadopoulos 1 November 2009

get rid of svn:externals

0% completed (estimate)


Owner: David Faure Notes

not possible with git, broken by design.

Is there a list of instances of svn::externals anywhere?--Yokem55 19:27, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Snapshot to read-only svn

0% completed (estimate)


Owner: Simon


it's work, but maybe some people would like it

NEEDED for documentation, in order to get it back into SVN for the translators/scripty/?

Could be done with a git-svn gateway presumably? -Mike Arthur 19/10/2009 16:04

Techbase Documentation

10% completed (estimate)


Owner: Chani, greeneg, - please help out! Notes

At least minimal documentation about how to checkout, how to get a gitorious account, how to request a merge needed, other git documentation and links to other git information would be very useful also.
