the YaST svn migrated to git - finally!

The YaST modules are grouped in the yast organization:

Some people asked me about automatically converting the svnignore properties
into .gitignore files.
In general: It is possible to automate this - yes - it requires some work
though. The result would be just a copy of the svnignores.

Anyhow I would recommend that every maintainer reviews the ignore settings of
his module and creates the .gitignore himself.
The benefits:
- You get used to git(ignore)
- You learn that it only requires one ".gitignore" file on the top level
instead of setting it for every single directory
- Your can review the ignores and clean them up.
Maybe we even can summarize them and create yast.gitignore and add it to:

The attached script does the initial conversion for you - just review the
output, clean it up and save the result in .gitignore.
Pass the URL as parameter:

You can do it manually with this command:
svn propget -R svn:ignore$MODULE
Just adapt the URL for branches if needed.
