Re: Textpattern moves to Git and GitHub

Fantastic news.

Addendum: from the article:

We will recreate all existing issues at GitHub, and inevitable cause a stream of issue creation notifications spamming the inboxes of anybody watching the repository. Apologies for that, but there’s nothing we can do about it…

If someone is watching a repository, they are informed of issues and comments by default, yes? Perhaps it would be smart to raise an issue now to inform watchers that a maelstrom of email/notifications are in the near future and give them time to un-watch for a short period should they wish. An issue to warn of issues, if you will.

Also, being picky, `inevitable` should be `inevitably`. Sorry if this makes me sound like an ass.

Re: Textpattern moves to Git and GitHub

Shall we delete the crockery branch in the GitHub repo? It’ll still be there in SVN for posterity. There’s not really any useful code in that now is there?

This would torpedo our goal of having identical issue numbers on both sides of the fence.

Got it. So it’s important no issues/pull requests are created until after the switch has been completed and signed off, right?

Exactly. It’ll take another few minutes.

Thank you for clarifying. I’m not champing at the bit, just making sure a well-intended pull request doesn’t derail the process.

Re: Textpattern moves to Git and GitHub

This is the least of my fears. We haven’t really been overwhelmed with pull requests these past few years ;)
