Hi YaST hackers,

the YaST svn migrated to git - finally!

After about 24 hours the conversion was completed.
All 147 YasT modules are now uploaded to
If you do not yet have a login on, go and create one.

The YaST modules are grouped in the yast organization:

As the libYUI was extracted from the YaST code base we put them into its
own organization to underline its independence:

We also got our first forks while I was still uploading the repos.
This shows the collaborative strength of git hosted projects.

To make your initial clones a little easier there is a small tool
called 'y2m' in this repo.

If just follow the installation instructions in the README
this tool helps you to clone or checkout all (or just some) YaST modules.
Please feel free to adapt and improve this tool (grep for TODO) or write
a better one. I just wanted to give those guys who are used to svn a small
tool to help them getting started.

Just one module did not make it in the conversion: yast-qt-pkg
I will reenable write access to it in svn. Thus it will be migrated later.

Please note the 'Conventions' for naming branches and tags for released
