Subject ANNOUNCE: Incubator CVS moving to Subversion
Date Sun, 19 Sep 2004 20:22:53 GMT
Don't panic.  :-)  We are not moving any project CVS modules, for those that
are still in CVS.

The Incubator PMC has decided to move the Incubator's own CVS modules into
Subversion.  This will take place today.

The new structure is what you see (temporarily) under:

Those who have access, and will be updating the repository will checkout

once it has been migrated.  It will also be visible via the normal http and
viewcvs methods.

Those of you who understand Subversion may be wondering about trunk
directory.  The ASF mailer uses the path to determine where to send commit
messages.  If we were to want to create a branch for possibly changing from
forrest to some other publishing engine, or there were to be an ASF
convention to have a "live" tag for site directories, we still want all of
those commit notices to be caught by the incubator/public mailer
configuration, and we won't have to change our checkouts.  So once you've
done your checkout, just ignore that there is a trunk component to the path.

Everyone who is a member of the Incubator PMC, a PMC Chair, and/or a member
of any project currently in the Incubator should have karma, since that was
the state of affairs prior to migration.  Please let me know if you've lost
commit access (an oversight) and need it.
