Well, the history for master would simply be shorter. To get a proper
kdevelop-legacy I still need to sort out the "mess" in svn
history/moving/merging. Unless we'd only move the kdev4-code to git and
leave the rest in svn and leave the burden of figuring out how to move
this to git to those that work on moving all of KDE.

Anyway, I think I've made quite some progress meanwhile with the
complete conversion. At this point dropping out the "old" history is
merely a matter of using a separate git-repository for the rules and
running the ruleset again.


Good day for overcoming obstacles.  Try a steeplechase.
