[Geany-devel] Git switch

so it looks like nobody is really opposed to a git switch and some 
people would even prefer it (including me), I would like to suggest 
having a brainstorm on how a switch could look like, and a final 
decision whether to do the switch or not.

Some points to be considered:

1) I have generally good experience with repo.or.cz for hosting and I 
like that it concentrates on the bare minimum, but there are other 
hosters which could be considered. repo.or.cz also makes forking dead 

- I think there's already a (or the) git mirror on repo.or.cz, I guess 
that could be made writable and reused.

2) Git offers different ways of doing it. We could go for a more 
svn-like management where certain people are allowed to push to a main 
repo or we could do it like the linux kernel where a single person 
manages the mainline and pulls from all the other guys.

3) move geany-plugins as well?

I would very much like to see the switch! git-svn is a large pain in the 

Best regards.
