[webkit-dev] Moving to Git?

In the light of discovering that some SVN scripts have fallen behind in terms of maintenance[1] and WebKit's strong Git support and infrastructure, against my better judgement, I'd like to distract you from being productive by bringing up this topic (again).

The wiki page of the same name[2] was created 3 years ago and hardly updated since[3]. I know we're all busy with more important things, but IMHO I think we can at least update the wiki and perhaps vote on when/how we should do the eventual transition.

I understand that while this type of work isn't necessarily very productive, maintaining two repositories and sets of scripts (with their docs and issues) has a very real cost as well. I'm proposing we reevaluate the situation and act accordingly.

Thanks for lending an ear,
