Well, you may thank Ossi for that :) He suggested (I didn't dig further
or even try it), that forward-merging the stable branch into master is
not going to work when we already branch in SVN.

As Alexander said, thats still the plan, except that given the above I'd
like to move to git before creating the stable branch. I hopefully have
the migration rules setup this weekend (including full history for
KDev3, 2.x and 1.4) and the steps and setup for Gitorious are clear now
too. So the only thing left is juggling out which projects to create and
how to organize them. Given that we still have 2 months until the 4.0
release this sounds doable.

The only thing that was discussed to be done sooner rather than later is
moving kdevelop-pg-qt to git and creating a release from there so that
the php plugin can depend on it (we have to drop the external for moving
it to git) and distro's have packages ready when php is released (Niko
and Milian target the KDev release time for that).


You will be Told about it Tomorrow.  Go Home and Prepare Thyself.
