Got up early for some healthy debate on the differences between Bazaar and Git at the DVCS Bof. Maybe the slot was changed when I wasn’t looking, but it turned into a “introduction to Git and Gitorious” presentation, with a packed audience. For a session meant to focus on DVCS in general, and how GNOME can move from SVN to $DVCS, it was a bit of a shame. BUT THEN…
There was a second smaller talk on DVCS that was slightly more productive. Neither side has managed to provide an action plan so far. When the Bazaar and the Git advocates can come to GNOME and say “we have a plan, this is how we are migrating and this is how we are going to fix all the systems that depend on GNOME”.. then we can talk. This whole issue needs some JFDI – we can’t cry/shout until our DVCS is picked, and then expect the sysadmins to take care of it.
On a lighter note, got some swag. Quite happy with the laptop bag, and the T-shirt is quite nice. Doesn’t match the codethink t-shirts though
Now back to cleaning up the Git code so Rob doesn’t harm me.
