NetBeans Repository Migrates to Mercurial
By: Admin, 12 Dec 2007
The NetBeans.org project is migrating its repository from CVS (cvs.netbeans.org) to Mercurial (hg.netbeans.org), and this change will effect all community members who are integrating code changes to repository.
The migration to Mercurial is planned to be completed as soon as possible, but with a minimal impact on current development. A small team has been put in place to facilitate this migration. They will deliver documentation and training materials to the community before the switch is done. Expect messages on the NetBeans mailing lists with more detailed information during December and at the beginning of January. We will explain in detail how the migration impacts you and what actions are expected on your side in these follow-up emails.
You may see some preparation work done directly in the cvs.netbeans.org repository already, for example moving some of the directories around and some changes to project metadata and build scripts. Such changes will be happening and will effect all modules in the cvs repository. We will do our best to not effect your work and do the changes transparently, and communicate about the changes which would have some temporary negative effect.
We welcome your questions and feedback via the the NetBeans mailing lists.
