Move code to GitHub?

Move code to GitHub?

Postby bigwave » 14.01.2017, 13:00

Hi,

Was just wondering if there is any possibility of moving the code base to Git Hub (or any other git based repository)?

Making it easier for other people to propose code changes was the reason I suggested this (and I probably should have put that in the original post!)

But other thoughts are:
* Better visibility of the code/project to the wider development/IT community?
* You don't have to maintain Trac anymore?

And I've had nasty experiences of SVN at work :-)

Cheers,
Ian

Hi.

Well, I've no problems using SVN at all, but that's not the point.

What I dislike is the idea that the code base is hosted wherever in the cloud, I don't know who the admins are and how many people are able to manipulate the sources.

Cheers,

Hi Torsten, thanks for your work on WSUSOfflineUpdater, I plan to use it to build an offline gaming/audio work Windows 7 rig. Everything works well so far but I wish it was easier to send basic patches (suggested a solution in viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5712), SVN make it really cumbersome and a distributed VCS such as git really makes things easier to collaborate.

Well git (the CVS, not to be confused with github the website) uses SHA hashes for integrity checks to prevent corruption/sneaky modifications. If you are worried about possible attacks on SHA it also supports GPG signing https://help.github.com/articles/signin ... using-gpg/ which is as good as you can get for an anti-tampering protection.

Hope you will reconsider. There are other free git hosting services such as https://gitlab.com https://framagit.org/ https://bitbucket.org/ ...if you don't trust/like github.com, or you can self-host gitlab or another open source VCS on your server (https://github.com/kickball/awesome-sel ... management - gitlab and gogs are decent solutions). I'm also interested in having a look/cleaning up the linux shell scripts but email patches/no bug tracker makes it really cumbersome.

Note that you can use git in the same way as SVN (edit files, add, commit, push)

Thanks again

A guide to clone wsusoffline repository should be provided. This is a good example.

With people being able to clone the repository, contribution can be made easier.

I've tried to clone http://svn.wsusoffline.net/trunk (guessing) but redirected to some other host and ended with error. A credential prompt appears when accessing svn.wsusoffline.net from the web browser.

Code: Select all
git svn clone -s -r 882:HEAD "$SVNREPOURL"


Granting read access to the repository is a good first step to gain open source contributions.

Hello telnetuserid,

Read access exists since (almost?) the beginning of this project. Just use https instead of http:

https://svn.wsusoffline.net/svn/wsusoffline/ (taken from the corresponding thread in the Information forum)

Mach mit - der Übersichtlichkeit wegen! Füge Log-Auszüge als [Code] ein.
Make it clear! Insert log excerpts as [Code].

Great.
This information should be available on the trac.wsusoffline.net front page, so that people will know about how to access the svn repository right away without digging too much into the forum.

FWIW, I created a GitHub mirror for the repo @ https://github.com/svn2github/WSUSOfflineUpdate some time ago.

Happy forking!
