Fedora Switching From CVS To Git

Package source control for Fedora has relied upon CVS since the inception of this Red Hat Linux distribution, but it's soon going to switch over to using Git instead. At the FUDCon event this week in Toronto, Red Hat's Jesse Keating has laid out these plans to stop using CVS and switch over to Git for its benefits: distributed management, it's faster than CVS, better patch management, and many upstream projects using this revision control system.

To ease in this transition, Jesse will be creating a helper script to conceal some of the complexities of Git while designing this script around the needs of Fedora and its contributors. The time-line for transitioning from CVS to Git for its source is that it will go live shortly after the release of Fedora 13, but could be delayed until after Fedora 14. Either way though, Red Hat should have Fedora's source running on Git in 2010.

More information on this move can be found in this blog post by Jesse Keating where he also links to his FUDCon slides on the topic.
