Go forward in time to February 2009.
I'm resurrecting an evil hack from resapplet, to make GNOME's RANDR tools rotate a tablet PC's stylus when you rotate the tablet itself. This is done with the xsetwacom utility, which lives in the linuxwacom module at SourceForge.
The linuxwacom package includes a kernel module for Wacom tablets and such. This is part of the lovely source tree:
champignon$ pwd /home/federico/src/linuxwacom-0.8.2-2/src champignon$ ls 2.4 2.4.30x86-64 2.6.11 2.6.14 2.6.16 2.6.19 2.6.24 2.6.27 2.6.9 Makefile.am util wacomxi 2.4.22 2.6.10 2.6.13 2.6.15 2.6.18 2.6.22 2.6.26 2.6.8 include Makefile.in wacom.4x xdrv
Dear kernel people,
Please stop wasting everyone's time with your API changes.
Owen just announced that we have writable Git repositories for your perusal, thanks to Kristian Høgsberg's incredible SCM-fu. You can push to the repositories for testing purposes, but ALL CHANGES WILL BE THROWN AWAY when the real/final/validated conversion is run. Note that the repositories are converted from SVN's state as of a week ago.
Please look over your modules and especially at the points which Owen mentions: do branches/tags look OK? Is the early, pre-SVN history all right? Do you like how commit messages turned up?
We will have a script to validate the actual content of tags/branches, to ensure that they are the same as in SVN, but for now please give the repositories a good look. Send your feedback to the gnome-infrastructure mailing list.
Owen mentioned that all of svn.gnome.org's repositories take about 20 GB. With Git, this will become a lot smaller.
Mandriva gave away some pretty cool USB sticks during the last few GUADECs.
The next set of USB sticks could come with all the content from git.gnome.org. Do you want a dozen years of work by hundreds of people, all in your pocket, ready to "git clone"? No problem!
Rough status of the migration to git.gnome.org:
Kristian has been converting SVN repositories and validating them. There's still a bunch of interesting cruft from the cvs->svn migration, like a bunch of strange tags in evolution.
Behdad is porting the SVN commit hooks to Git.
I classified the SVN commit hooks to see why not all modules had identical hook scripts. I'm looking at how to migrate SVN properties like svn:externals, svn:ignore, svn:eol-style, etc.
Go backward in time to December 2008.Federico Mena-Quintero <email@example.com> Thu 2009/Jan/08 16:09:28 CST
