I just modified the script that creates the official grimoire tarballs
to pull some sections from git instead of perforce. I'm not sure if I
got the sections you wanted Robin, so tell me if something is wrong.
These sections are now pulled exclusively from git for the test
Anything done to these sections in perforce won't make it to our users'
grimoires, neither will any changes done in git in other sections.
This is for this testing period only, we don't want to hold back testers
by forcing everyone to do each change twice (once in git, once in p4).
If any section maintainer wants to move to git for this testing period
(or if I forgot some section above), please sync up git so it has the
same state as perforce, then tell me and I'll add it to my script.
Right now I only have it setup for the test grimoire, stable-rc and
stable still come from perforce, but I'll probably get those up-to-date
in git and pulled from git too for the above sections.
We'll do the same with the other SCMs we want to test (svn, svk), so
developement will be a little fragmented over the next couple of weeks,
but I think that should give us a good base for evaluation.
If any change in one of the git sections requires changes to
grimoire-level files (ChangeLog, FUNCTIONS, groups, ...), those changes
should be done both in git and in perforce, so that a) the grimoire
keeps working in git and b) the required changes get into the grimoire
tarball for our users from p4.
