We need to move everything from Alioth to Salsa some time before the end of May.
There is already a "kernel-team" group on Salsa, and the members of the "kernel" group on Alioth have been added to this group. Since all our live version control repositories use git, it should be a simple and quick process to replicate them on Salsa. I think what we need to do is: 1. Agree the date and time to start migration. 2. At that time, add hooks on Alioth to disable further writes. 3. Start migration. 4. Update all references to Alioth: - Configure anonscm.debian.org to forward to Salsa - Update package Vcs fields - Update kernel-handbook text I don't think we use many other features of Alioth. The features I know about are: * kernel-svn-changes mailing list and hook. I think this will be redundant. Any Salsa user can "watch" a repository or group to receive email notifications about commits. * IRC notification hook (KGB client). Salsa has an "integration" for the Irker notification service. This needs to be enabled and configured with the server and channel details for each repository. I don't know whether anything needs to be done on the Irker server side. Have I missed anything? I propose that we start the migration after the point release is done, so on Sunday 11th March, starting at 16:00 UTC.
