Hi everybody,

It's been a long effort to create a tool that can migrate the YaST SVN repo
into single git repos. In its current state all but one repo succeed in the
conversion. The missing/failing module is 'qt-pkg'.

Based on these facts the YaST-Team on Monday decided not to wait until the
conversion tool is perfect, but rather do the switch to git ASAP.

As there is a German holiday on Thursday we decided to switch the SVN to
read- only on Wednesday 16:00 CEST. Then a final dump will be made and the
conversion will run. The only YaST module that will be switched back to
read- write in SVN is 'qt-pkg.

Once all other modules are done they will be uploaded to github.
There will be a separate announcement eMail when it is done.

So checkin everything you are working on now, as on Thursday you will not
be able to checkin any changes.

See you on Friday on
BTW: If you are familiar with subversion and don't want to learn the new git
commands, you can talk svn to github. See:
