CC'ing the release team on this, since there's a point of interest here.
Release Team: Artur is working on migrating kdeplasma-addons to git. the
question is now about logistical details and issues. see below.

a) thanks for working on this
b) this is going to force us to define our desired workflow for plasma now
that we have git. more on that later, and i think an irc meeting for that is
in order, in fact.
c) timing will be important and we need to coordinate development. personally
i can imagine at least two approaches:
* we make the migration ASAFP, before the first betas of 4.6 and before 4.7 is
branched off so that backporting / forwardporting changes will continue to
* make the change shortly after the public release of 4.6, to maximize the
personally, i prefer the first since it will give us continuity between 4.6
and 4.7. usually once we go into beta of a release and the next one is about
to branch off, the older release stops getting backported fixes anyways. in
this case that would be the 4.5 branch in svn. so this would be the nicest
time to make the switch, imho.
but that will require support from the release team as the release of
kdeplasma-addons for 4.6 would have to come from git.kde.org instead of
svn.kde.org. if the release team members veto that for the 4.6 release, then
we will need to consider the second (or some other?) option.
also, when we do the import, we'll need to notify everyone on plasma-devel@ so
that we don't get commits happening in svn on the day(s) of the actual import.
that's easy enough to coordinate though, and perhaps sysadmin could help us by
making that area of svn read-only on the day the git import is scheduled to
