[jitsi-dev] Switch to Git


#1

I've filled this issue already as JITSI-999 without knowing your procedures.
Please reopen this issue if you want to solve it.

Switching to Git would make it much easier for externals (e.g. distro
packagers) to collaborate with you without the need for write access to your
repo. Both Debian and Fedora use Git almost exclusively.

I strongly second! It'll be a bonus if jitsi is hosted on github as well!

Hey there,

We should probably add a faq entry for this one since it comes up every now
and then. As much as we like it, we don't think git would currently bring
that much to Jitsi. On the other hand, it would require some work on our
build system and it could be a problem for some devs.

Besides, we don't really have any major issues with SVN, so we are fine
with it for the time being.
