Hi Jerry,

I think we should have a more detailed discussion after (0)
as I assume not everyone (including me) understand what you
propose as work flow.

Maybe it would be useful to do the whole migration in 2 steps.
First replace svn by git just technical, without changing the workflow
at all (still having a central upstream repository), so that everybody
can learn just git or cogito as tools. Then when as second step change
the work flow.

I think (2) should really be the last step and the build-farm
should be able to handle git repos first, I can look at this when we
have passed (1).

We should also look careful at http://git.or.cz/gitwiki/GitCommonMistakes.

Before going online with the new git repo, we should
make sure it's perfect for us...What I mean here is
we need to think about git submodule, we wanted to use for
talloc, tdb, ldb, libreplace...
