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 cvs.NetBSD.org hardware. This provides a somewhat faster conversion cycle as well as removing anoncvs.NetBSD.org 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 @NetBSD.org addresses (src, xsrc) or @pkgsrc.org 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
src https://src.fossil.NetBSD.org https://github.com/NetBSD/src
pkgsrc https://pkgsrc.fossil.NetBSD.org https://github.com/NetBSD/pkgsrc
xsrc https://xsrc.fossil.NetBSD.org https://github.com/NetBSD/xsrc

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.

Joerg
