[Kde-scm-interest] KDE Git hosting status update

as all of you know, over the past several months the board of KDE
e.V., on behalf of the KDE community, has been in negotiations with
Shortcut AS to investigate the possibility of KDE hosting its full
set of planned Git repositories on Shortcut's Gitorious.org plat-
form. At the end of this process, it became clear that a mutually
acceptable agreement was not in the cards.

The board informed the KDE Sysadmin team, of which I'm a member and
on behalf of which I'm writing to you now, of this likely outcome
in late May and asked us to start seriously looking into how we
would implement Git hosting in the context of our own infrastruc-
ture, which had always been on the table as an option as well.

In response to the board's request, the Sysadmin team has performed
a series of test installations and evaluations of software stacks
and compiled a report detailling the solution we decided we should
run with. This report has been shared with the board and the mem-
bership of KDE e.V. earlier today and we're happy to say has so far
been met with very positive feedback.

We're sharing it with you now - see the attachments to this mail -
and hope you will agree that we have found a solid way forward for
the KDE Git migration efforts.

We look forward to your input, and will naturally keep you posted
as the situation develops further with regard to the production-
readyness of KDE's Git hosting facilities, and of course will have
to work together on future migrations both from svn.kde.org and of
the repositories we currently have on Gitorious.org.

Best regards,
Eike Hein
