On git.gnome.org and gitorious


GNOME migrated to Git two years ago but there are a few long standing
issues that have not been addressed yet, it's certainly not too late
but with the design team moving to github, it's certainly time to do
something about it.

http://live.gnome.org/GitMigration had it written down already, "For
the future, enable Gitorious or some other Git-based collaboration
tool". Is this something we can handle by ourselves? Or should we,
just like the bugzilla upgrade a few years ago seek the foundation
help to hire someone? [this is why this is posted to foundation-list]

With a gitorious instance set up, we'd achieve both a place for
personal branches, stopping the "delete work-in-progress branch from
git.gnome.org, then create it again, pushing all commits because I
rebased" dance, and a place where it's easier to set up accounts for
newcomers (which is a reason why the design work doesn't happen on



[PS: working on git infrastructure would also be a good opportunity to
fix https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=599066]
