• Converting pkg-gnome to new git layout

    From Jeremy Bicha@21:1/5 to All on Wed Dec 20 22:10:01 2017

    We've completed much of the work for migrating svn packages to git
    repos. This project has been years in the planning but became more
    urgent with the upcoming Alioth shutdown. The new git repos use DEP-14
    style branch names with full upstream source and upstream commit

    For more information about the layout and workflow, see https://wiki.debian.org/Gnome/Git

    We also intend to convert existing pkg-gnome git repos to the new
    layout this week. Please speak up immediately if there are any
    concerns about that.

    Git doesn't handle renaming branches very well, so I recommend backing
    up any local commits, branches or tags you may have and then just
    doing a new clone of the repos after they have had their branches

    There are a few pkg-gnome repos on collab-maint that we will probably
    move to pkg-gnome this week too.

    Some packages did not export correctly so we'll need to temporarily
    continue using the svn repos for them. https://anonscm.debian.org/git/pkg-gnome/?q=broken+svn+export
