Bringing Git to Drupal: The fun kind of pain
A history of the eight-month long, highly intensive project to convert the
entire Drupal project (some 12,000 projects/repositories and as many
contributing developers) from CVS to Git. This was one of the largest such
conversions ever done on an open source project. It was quite an effort,
both socially and technically, and there were a lot of lessons learned and
mistakes made along the way. I'll share as many of those as I can pack in.
Among other sundry bits, I'll explain why we *didn't* just move to GitHub.
* Migrating Drupal to Git
About Sam Boyer:
Sam Boyer was the lead on the conversion to Git and has continued as the
Git administrator for the Drupal project. He also maintains several
popular contributions to Drupal itself. Sam is a web back-end engineer
with an interest in scalable and distributed systems, and has also taken to
devops and automation work in the past couple years.
