Telemeta project now uses Git for development

Ten months ago, I started to look at other version control systems because I was fed up with the Subversion centralized model. It tested Git, Mercurial, Bazaar, etc.. Bazaar was the good choice because it allowed the dev teams to make branches easily in a decentralized environment, to push commits to the old subversion repository, to keep an easy syntax, etc...

Now there are few reasons to switch back to Git:

  • we want to checkout and test branches faster without managing dozens of repositories,
  • we do not want to upload 500 ko of data for a 1 line commit,
  • we want to push the generic Telemeta to GitHub.

Sorry Bzr folks, I like your stuff, but Git is more appropriate now for this project.

Developers, please update your skills :)

What you need to do with the new repository:

  • Get the lastest development version to try the lastest useful features :
    git clone http://vcs.parisson.com/git/telemeta.git
    
  • To get the CREM's branch:
    git clone http://vcs.parisson.com/git/telemeta.git
    git checkout crem
    

NB : This is the good method to convert a Bzr repo.
