[GRASS-dev] Towards SVN - git integration

(after a while)

I agree with Rainer - and I understand the conservative point of view - and
still remember last change from cvs to svn. Meanwhile, couple of you might
have custom scripts which do enable similar magic in svn, which are natural
to git (without any need for hacking). Git really makes it *very* easy to
merge code and solve conflicts, not to mention possibility of forking and
pulling from various repos (more organised way of accepting someone's
code). I think, it's possible to have the main repo in Git and access it
with svn client, if I'm not mistaken. But moving to git as main repo would
be wise option IMHO.

Github certainly is great service. Custom GitLab instance on (OSGeo?)
server should certainly be considered. But what is the difference between
GitHub and Intevation (for those, who remember)? Just the scale business
model IMHO, but the principal is the same - private companies hosting
infrastructure for open source projects.

Just my 2 cents
