Why?  When we convert it to Git you'll get it all anyways and this is
hugely inefficient.

I guess the emails we've had back and forth on this list were a figment

Which, as I said, would have to wait until at least this week when it
could all be discussed at Akademy.

Which we did today, at lunch.

We have a way forward for an official KDE Git solution.  Taglib is
already in line to get ported (with all history) as soon as we can,
which means as soon as a couple bugs get fixed (we've been told should
be about a week).

Can you work with me here, instead of repeatedly forging ahead and
ignoring all the things that were previously discussed (and agreed upon)?
