RE: Would branching across repositories be theoretically possible?

Hello everyone,


Thank you for all the feedback. I shall now digest it, read up more on
svnsync, git-svn, etc., and then hopefully come up with something
interesting to say.


Thanks again,

        BTW, it would have been better to send your question to the
users@ list.

        The dev@ list is off-topic for questions like this. I suppose
you chose
        dev@ because of your idea to develop support for
cross-repository copies,
        which I'll address now:

At a meta-level, I've seen this dismissal and plea to just send to
users@ instead happen a few times recently on dev@. I'd like to ensure
we don't hinder potential contributors by sending out the wrong tone in
their initial interactions with dev@. We welcome all contributors with
open arms. To me, Zem's initial post was perfectly appropriate for dev@
and given the ensuing discussions including some that apparently
happened off-list, it was (and is) a good catalyst for discussion and
bringing those discussions back to the list. In other words, in my
opinion, a very good and on-topic dev@ post.

Back to the topic at hand, my take on this feature is it's probably a
good idea to figure out how to solve it...the landscape over a decade
ago when we started out isn't the same as it is now. -- justin

P.S. Hi Zem! =)
