Hi Folks!

Hi! :)


I would like to work on this git backend for OBS during this year's
Google Summer of Code. The idea is described here:
http://en.opensuse.org/Summer_of_Code_2009#prototype_git_backend_for_OBS.
As Brandon Philips correctly stated the main goal is not to provide the
full-blown git integration into BuildService, but rather to create
working OBS instance that uses git for storing the source files instead
of currently used BSDB solution. It should be a prototype, with which we
could make tests later and see the advantages (and disadvantages) of the
git approach. A part of the solution is also a conversion tool which
will convert sources stored in BSDB into git repositories, so the
migration wouldn't be very painful.

IMO a migration tools is not really needed for a prototype or proof of
concept, better spend the time designing how source links or osc
integration should work. Once you show us that it can work (and how), we
can start thinking about migrating the existing build service(s).

Good luck! :)

Michal
