New home for the repository conversion

June 10, 2017 posted by Kamil Rytarowski

Hello all,

the repository conversion setup for NetBSD CVS -> Fossil -> Git has found a new home. Ironically, on former hardware. This provides a somewhat faster conversion cycle as well as removing from the process. This should avoid occasional problems with incomplete syncs. Two other changes have been applied at the same time:

  • The Fossil repositories have moved to using the SHA512 checksums internally. To avoid accidents, a new project code is used. This requires Fossil 2.x.
  • The Git repositories map user names to addresses (src, xsrc) or addresses (pkgsrc). This allows consolidation on github with user accounts, assuming you have the corresponding addresses as primary or secondary address.

The new locations for the repositories are:

CVS Fossil Git

The old conversions will be provided for the near future, but likely stop toward the end of the month.

A special thanks goes to Petra and Christos from the admin team for the assistance with the machine setup and low-level CVS clean-ups.
