1.1       spz         1: ## Requirements
                      3: A list of requirements for a possible replacement for CVS as repo software for NetBSD and pkgsrc so we don't keep starting over listing these (and forgetting half) all of the time:
                      5: - the license would be nice to be BSDish, must be open source and free to use
                      6: - the software should be includeable in NetBSD base without too much excess baggage
                      7: - it should be possible to do development on old or small hardware
                      8: - it must support automated updating of source trees
                      9: - it must support branches
                     10: - there should be a conversion for the present history (that actually works)
                     11: - the resulting repository must not break easily
                     12: - the software should be reasonably mature and reliable
1.3       spz        13: - checkout of a pkgsrc tree must be feasible on a 32MB system
                     14: - checkout of a stable pkgsrc tree and then updating select package subdirs to the latest version of the main branch should be possible
                     15: - lasting removal of legally tainted code must be possible
1.1       spz        16: 
                     17: Please add/correct.
                     19: ***
1.2       spz        21: ## Experiences in using the software
                     23: ### Experiences with git
                     25: please fill in
                     27: ### Experiences with Subversion
                     29: please fill in
                     31: ***
1.1       spz        33: ## Conversion experiences
1.5     ! wiki       35: Conversion of all modules to git succeeded using fromcvs togit. The resulting git repository of src contains several errors where files have a wrong version (eg in hunt/Makefile the contents of the file on the vendor branch appear as tip of the master branch, which is quite wrong).
        !            36: There have been no reports of errors in the other modules; this may be due to a lack of testing.
