We migrated the source code repositories from Subversion to Git recently. Thanks to the HOW-TO, the commit logs in Subversion are all preserved.
Why we want to migrate them to Git? The main reason is speed. LXDE is a desktop environment with fast in mind, thus we need a fast SCM which can match our motto. For more information, please read “Why Git is better than X.”
For newcomers of Git, you can also read the git documentations on its website. I believe it is not too difficult to learn how to use it.
Please use the following command to get the source code:
git clone git://lxde.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/lxde/REPO_NAME
The REPO_NAME is the repository name, which is listed here.
In addition, I made this video during the migration to Git. Enjoy!
