The main krb5 source repository will be migrating from Subversion to Git, targeting the weekend of 2012-05-11.
Rebasing existing krb5-anonsvn forks
Some collaborators have forked the existing krb5-anonsvn repository on GitHub. The conversion process involves making some history edits to make the log messages more readable in typical Git tools. While this will provide a better experience for Git users going forward, the new repository will have a history that is disjoint from the krb5-anonsvn repository. It is possible to rebase existing local work that was based off the krb5-anonsvn repository.
The following example makes these assumptions:
- Your Git remote for the krb5-anonsvn repository is named "origin" (which is probably true if you created your local repository using
- The local branch that you want to rebase is based off of "origin/master"
git remote add krb5-test git://github.com/krb5/krb5-test git fetch krb5-test git rebase --onto krb5-test/master origin/master
This may not necessarily work well if your local branch has merge commits in it.
Using the new repository
Some draft procedures for interacting with the new repository are at:
This includes advice for committers and for contributors who are preparing contributions using a GitHub fork (or other downstream Git repository).
