kdeplasma-addons is on git too

February 1, 2011

Today we finally converted kdeplasma-addons to git :) The rules itself were written some time ago and we waited for the conversion of kdelibs and kdebase. Thanks to eean I found a last minute problem on the rules and today we fixed that!

You can find kdeplasma-addons on https://projects.kde.org/projects/kde/kdeplasma-addons and you can easily clone the repo using:

git clone kde:kdeplasma-addons

Assuming that you did the trick below in your ~/.gitconfig file:

[url "git://anongit.kde.org/"]
insteadOf = kde:
[url "ssh://git@git.kde.org/"]
pushInsteadOf = kde:

I have been working with git for almost four years now and I used a lot of tools to create projects and help with visualizing repositories. With ReviewBoard and RedMine all integrated, the commit mails, integration with BKO and other features (a lot of them were already present with svn) I can say that KDE’s git infrastructure is one of the most complete and professional that I’ve ever seen. It’s really very “PRO” and I would love to have any of our sysadmins working on my IT department. Guys, you really rock! (besides doing an amazing work).

I think that it’s fair also to thank KO that sponsored Ian to work and do the conversions of kdelibs and kdebase. This was not an easy job and it’s really a pain to do the conversion *right*. Of course we may find some rough edges right now as we still need to get used to new workflows and new tools but IMHO we will overcome that and soon we will feel the benefits of git ;)
