Migrate the package sources to Dist-Git, using Pagure as the frontend.
- Name: Neal Gompa
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
This will require efforts by packagers to package distgit and pagure for Mageia and sysadmins to deploy it and migrate our current Dist-SVN to Dist-Git.
- Targeted release: Mageia 8
- Last updated: 2020/03/03
- Percentage of completion: 0%
We want to migrate our package sources from our SVN to Git, using a Fedora/OpenMandriva-style Dist-Git system, using Pagure as a frontend to enable modern PR-based workflow for packages.
Why it would be good for Mageia to do it
Moving to Dist-Git with Pagure as a frontend will make it easier for people to get involved in the development of Mageia. As PR-centric workflows have become the dominant development process (in large part due to the popularity of GitHub), offering people the ability to do "drive-by" contributions that can be reviewed and merged by packagers would increase the attractiveness to get actively involved in the development of the distribution as full contributors.
To be determined...
- Package distgit
- Package pagure
- Convert svn+binrepo to distgit
mgarepoto operate over Dist-Git (revive proyvind's branch which has code for this? rebase on latest
- Deploy pagure as a frontend for distgit
- It would also be a good idea to roll out a pagure frontend for our soft-git too...
Software / Packages Dependencies
What could disrupt development of this new feature
If the packaging and the repository conversion can't be done, then this can't be completed.
Early inclusion into Mageia 8 would allow for good appropriation of development and sysadmin resources to make this work.
If this fails to be ready for Mageia 8, then we continue with the current Dist-SVN setup.
