Cafu on Github

Post by sycoso » 2012-09-18, 21:29

Hello everyone,

because I prefer git, github forking is awesome and I couldn't find it yet, I uploaded the Cafu subversion trunk to github. I'll update it from time to time; feel free to remind me :wink:

Here it is:
https://github.com/sycoso/Cafu

Of course I'd prefer Carsten to do it, but I guess he's just not into using git, so I'll do it for him :)


Btw: feel free to put the thread in the right subforum!

Hi sycoso,
welcome to the Cafu forums! :welcome:

Many thanks for putting a copy of Cafu to GitHub!
I've updated our documentation that refers to Git (Getting Started with the Cafu Source Code, Dev FAQ) to also link back to this thread.

I have in fact switched several other project repositories that I use from Subversion to Git. For example, this website is maintained in a Git repository since about half a year.

However, switching the Cafu repository is a quite big challenge:
  • We use vendor branches to manage the external libraries, which are not trivially migrated to Git (submodules), especially if you wish to maintain proper branching structure.
  • Our issue tracker is quite closely interweaved with the Subversion repository. A migration is possible, but it takes careful planning and a lot of time.
As soon as I can resolve these issues, I'll also provide an "official" Cafu Git repository. :up:
Best regards,
Carsten

Hi Carsten,

wow, didn't expect such a positive response :D

Okay, then I'll try to keep it up to date until there is an official version.


Btw: your smilies look sort of creepy :wink:

That's not a smiley, it's my avatar. :cheesy:

But, really... creepy?
I got quite used to and grew fond of them (although I think about throwing about 2/3 of them out).

Do you happen to know a better set?
Best regards,
Carsten

I was tempted to comment about the "avatar/smiley" thing, but I didn't expect that you would do it to yourself :lol:

Actually I was talking about those:

They are supposed to be positive? :shock:

But no, sorry, I don't know a better set :(
