The mailing list has been silent: most discussion seems to be happening
on IRC (see #baserock on the irc.freenode.org
network). There's also
edits on the wiki. Both of these are difficult to follow afterwards.
Therefore, I'll try to make sure we announce new stuff on the list. If
it isn't on the list, it didn't happen.
Yesterday, I wrote a tool to take code from upstream version control
repositories and push it into Gitorious (the baserock-morphs project) in
git repositories. This is necessary, because we will be using only git
for Baserock development, for various reasons.
The new tool is called Lorry.
* Wiki: http://wiki.baserock.org/Lorry/
* Gitorious: https://gitorious.org/baserock/lorry
It's built on top of git-svn, bzr-fastimport, and git-cvsimport. Those
take care of the actual conversions. Lorry will grow support for more
version control systems later on, as we need it. I'd quite welcome
patches for that, of course.
Lorry is by no means a core tool for Baserock, but it's something we
need, and we need it now, and I couldn't find something suitable to use,
so I hacked it together quickly.
Code review and other comments welcome!
