The switch is done and git is live. We have some things to wrap up:

  • What do we do with "dead" packages? We decided that "attic" is kind of pointless in svn, since we can just get history from the repo. But in Git each package is a repo, so the top level will get busy. Can we have multiple levels of submodules? Or should we move the package's git repo to /git/athena/attic or something? We need a better solution than "stop commiting to it and let it bitrot".
  • Now that we're all on Git, can we "link" better to upstream c-p-d and nss_nonlocal? Or can we just move upstream c-p-d to Github or something?
  • Documentation (I'll work on this)
  • Anything else we need to worry about before closing this ticket? (Gerrit, gpb, etc are out of scope for this ticket).

Also, achernya should push his fork of the krbdev-services repo to mit-athena on Github, so that that always reflects what's actually in production on drugstore.
