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
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
17: Please add/correct.
21: ## Experiences in using the software
23: ### Experiences with git
25: please fill in
27: ### Experiences with Subversion
29: please fill in
33: ## Conversion experiences
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.
