git migration this weekend

Hi Folks,

I'm planning on freezing the sourceforge svn repository Friday evening
at 8:00 (NY time), and moving the git repository to its new home on
Saturday morning.

If you have concerns, please speak up.

Darren

John discovered a problem with some very early project history that
was lost several years ago during the CVS to Subversion migration. We
have an opportunity to recover it during the git migration. However,
do to a recent attack, Sourceforge has taken their CVS service down,
and based on the latest information at http://sourceforge.net/blog/ ,
they do not expect it to be back before late this week. I do not think
I will available to work on the migration this upcoming weekend, Feb
4-6. So it will probably be February 7 or 8 before I have a chance to
try to recover the old history, convert the repos to git, and post
them to github.

It looks like the history we were looking for does not exist in the
CVS repository either.

John, could you freeze the svn repo around noon on Friday? I'll
convert the repositories and push them up to github on Saturday. Is it
possible to close the sourceforge bugtracker, feature requests, etc to
new issues as well?

are you guys planning on transfering the old bugs to github? As I
mentioned, I have code lying around for the upload (and to download
from launchpad, but that's irrelevant here). I'm going to be mosly
offline til Monday (conference trip), but if someone pings me on my
Berkeley email address, which I monitor even while traveling, I'll be
happy to help out.

Glad to see eveythong moving over to github! (since scipy is also
about to do the same, as soon as 0.9 is out, for which things are
already at the RC stage).

A huge thank you to Darren for putting so much hard work into this, I
admire your attention to detail (and I wish I'd been so thorough when
I transitioned ipython, where we could have recovered from some old
history problems, but I'm too lazy for that :).

Cheers,

As for the tracker, similarly, I see how to disable it but not to
freeze it so that no new issues can be added. Anyone seeing things
differently?

Darren,

Just a heads-up on that: In November the tracker was heavily spammed. Recently I marked a few hundred items with the "delete" disposition, but I don't think that actually gets rid of them. If it doesn't, then maybe they can be filtered out during the transfer.

Even better, a pre-commit hook that also echos out a message stating where to go. And maybe a pre-update/pre-checkout hook that does something similar?

Yes. But those aren't custom -- SF only provides a fixed set of scripts one can apply. Notably, I don't think there's one that prevents further commits.

If that is the case, then let's just change the permissions for all
the devs to read-only. We can leave the tracker, feature requests, and
so forth enabled until we are ready to disable them at some later
time. Once the website is online at matplotlib.github.com, we can
follow the directions for "project relocation" at
https://sourceforge.net/project/admin/removal.php?group_id=80706 .
SourceForge will keep the project intact as an archive.

We have some additional spam that needs to be deleted. How did you do
it? When I try to delete several at once (mass change), I get an error

I made the tracker display the maximum number of entries per page, then clicked "check all", then "mass update" with "delete", and it marked them as "deleted"--but they never get deleted. They are still there, but marked "deleted". It sounds like that is the same as what you tried, so I don't know why you are getting that error message.

Which tracker category is showing the new spam?

Overall, the tracking interface on github looks so bad that I can't see why we would want to move. Sourceforge is slow, but at least the tracker has the right sort of functionality: the ability to scan a lot of info on one screen, the ability to categorize, attach files, assign, etc. Maybe some of this is available but not evident in the github tracker, but what I see is not encouraging.

Mpl historically has not done well in using the tracker. I hope that eventually we can transition to a tool that will help us do better, not worse.

Ditto on this. Github has been a wonderful tool for developers, but for users of projects, I haven’t seen the amount of sophistication and polish that sourceforge has.

I am personally fine with continuing to use sourceforge for the tracker (I know I need to catch up on bugs there…). My main concern, though, is having two active issue trackers – one on sourceforge and one on github.

Overall, the tracking interface on github looks so bad that I can't see
why we would want to move. Sourceforge is slow, but at least the
tracker has the right sort of functionality: the ability to scan a lot
of info on one screen, the ability to categorize, attach files, assign,
etc. Maybe some of this is available but not evident in the github
tracker, but what I see is not encouraging.

I agree that the github interface is not great. The github devs seem
to know that everybody complains about it.

There are some good things about it though. Labels, the ability to
link between an issue and the commits that resolve it, the ability for
people to provide feedback on what issues are important to them.

Mpl historically has not done well in using the tracker. I hope that
eventually we can transition to a tool that will help us do better, not
worse.

I disagree that we would do worse with the github tracker.
