I'm guessing we could have pywikipedia/trunk and pywikipedia/rewrite in Gerrit.

Hi Chad,

In December, I think the consensus was to move to Gerrit [1] -
basically with the goal to keep it as close as possible to mediawiki,
hopefully also easing contributions (to mw for pwb developers and vice
versa). I have put some initial work into the migration (see
https://github.com/pywikibot/svn2git ), but I have not had the time to
smooth out the wrinkles.

Ooh, you found my tool :) Cleaning up those rule files should be
pretty trivial, then we can convert all of the wanted history pretty
quickly. I've gone ahead and drafted a page on mw.org based on
the rules you wrote along with a survey of the existing SVN layout.

Will you be at the Hackathon next week? I think this would be a good
topic to discuss there.

I'm afraid I won't be making it this year.
