Re: conversion to subversion
Although Subversion is not such a big improvement over CVS as we might
have liked, other systems, like git, have certain disadvantages (which
mainly have to do with the possibility of partial checkout, a steeper
learning curve for translators, and the compatibility with the current
scripts) that are hard to overcome at this time. In any case, i think
moving to Subversion is an improvement.
And what are the gains from moving to Subversion? Besides tracking copies
and having a globally unique revision history, I can't really see any gains
as far as webwml is concerned. But feel free to enlighten me.
Note that this is a scratch repository. It was converted from CVS a few
weeks ago, so some wml files are out of date.
Please make sure that if we decide to do a change, that the history is
retained, as it is very important when it comes to the translations. Of
course, since the translations are tied to the CVS history and its revision
numbers, keeping that consistent after converting to any new format will be
a pain (but it nevertheless needs to be addressed).
