Everyone seems to be ok with doing this sooner rather than later, so
how about we pencil in the date of June 14th (next Friday)? That
gives us enough time to figure out the parts we don't know as well as
get notifications out to the relevant places. Things I think we need to
1) Exact repo structure. I think we've gotten a good discussion started
on the wiki, but I'd like to see more input (and please, feel free to edit
it mercilessly, this was all written based on my naïve understanding of
how you guys work)
2) Who gets initial permissions on the repo(s). I've seen suggestions
for a select list, all committers in 2013...any of these is fine by me.
Remember this is permission for +2'ing and merging, all registered users
will be able to submit changes for review (just like everywhere else in
3) What to do with submodules. A concise list of all the current externals
will make this easier.

One thing I didn't notice on the plan is that
right now we have a lot of
externals set up, some of which are also dependent on the Toolserver.
Should we be converting these to git submodules? Or what?
If they're available via Git too, then yes, we can switch them over to
once everything's migrated. For stuff coming from SVN, we'll have to find
way (but it's not impossible).

that wasn't explicitly stated, and drafted a list on the talk page
some things we should do/update after the migration (update docs, update
nightlies source, etc)
As I said on-wiki, that sounds like a reasonable list of people to start
with for having
+2 access on the repo. The group will be self-managing, so you guys can
people to it as you see fit. The docs/nightlies stuff is more in your
it's good to keep a list of such things, sure.
