Using GIT trees

XFS git howto

The Git trees are automated mirrored copied of the cvs trees using git-cvsimport. Since git-cvsimport utilized the tool cvsps to recreate the atomic commits of ptools or "mod" it is easier to see the entire change that was committed using git.

git-cvsimport generated trees.

Changes headed for the main linux 2.6 tree, manual merges.

Cloning the git trees for local use:


$ git clone git://oss.sgi.com/linux-2.6-xfs-from-cvs
$ git clone git://oss.sgi.com/xfs-cmds
$ git clone git://oss.sgi.com/xfs/xfs-2.6


== XFS cvs trees

The cvs trees were created using a script that converted sgi's internal ptools repository to a cvs repository, so the cvs trees were considered read only.

At this point a new development is being managed by the git trees so the cvs trees are not longer active in terms of current development and should only be used for reference.
