    There are more modern version control systems, e.g. pijul which is even written in Rust.

    I am not sure a pull request is a unique feature of git. Automatic commit check and manual review is not related to git too.

    I believe virtually every VCS allows several repos per host. SVN certainly does.

    So, maybe there are other reasons to use git.

    What existing services do you propose to replace with gitea? How do you plan to move their contents?

    Sweetbread wrote: Sat Feb 24, 2024 5:40 pm What is already done?

    Autobuild with Gitea Actions
    Why changing the current scheme that uses a post-commit hook? Will the autobuild via gitea actions work for direct commits to main?

    Sweetbread wrote: Sat Feb 24, 2024 5:40 pm So, tag and offset will be used instead of revision number
    This way we will get rv0.7.7.0-1234 on the blue screen instead of r2345. Is it ok?
    Also, 'git show v0.7.7.0-1234' will not find the commit.
    Then, if the kernel logs its version as v0.7.7.0-1234, how should I find the corresponding commit?

    What's the reason continue using svn? Also, currently GSoC is going, why we scare the students with old websvn? Also, people wants git by results of voting

    3. Pull requests to avoid that kind of situations
    4. Maybe, wiki in future

    "It's working -- don't touch" is not cool. Gitea allows, why not use it? In commit list we will see commits, that failed building/testing, then click add see where and why "without leaving the cash register".

    In git there is no revision number. Then we need another way to indentificate the commit - git describe. It returns tag, offset and hash. Tag is version, then we need in version specification

    I've just checked that their chat has more members than our Telegram chat. Does it count as popular or we need the most popular thing? Maybe we should switch to the most popular programming language, JavaScript? By the way, the vision for their community is reported to borrow a lot from the Rust community. I have no idea of what it means but sounds modern. Moreover, pijul has it's very own Code of Conduct, what more can we need from a version control system?

    Not good for what? It's very convenient for our autobuild, because building a single repo is easier than syncing several ones. It's easier for new developers because they don't have to bother with git submodules or separate repos for the kernel, drivers, programs, skins, etc. But the main reason is simple: it isnt done because nobody cares enough to do it.

    Well, svn has been our setup for decades. If you propose to change this, it is your responsibility to explain reasons and benefits. For now I see that git is modern (no so modern in fact), it can merge (just like svn) and has branches (in a different way than we have in the repo, and nobody cares to convert these svn branches to git branches). Is there any other reason to change our current setup?

    Sweetbread wrote: Mon Feb 26, 2024 1:46 pm Also, currently GSoC is going, why we scare the students with old websvn?
    Why should they be scared of websvn? I believe that our Telegram chat in Russian scares them more.

    Sweetbread wrote: Mon Feb 26, 2024 1:46 pm Also, people wants git by results of voting
    That counts. I believe they also want Firefox in KolibriOS and KolibriOS on RaspberryPi.

    So, we can do some work to stay at the same place.

    In what way? Because there is no theme with ponies?
    I'm starting thinking that you just call "old" and "fusty" everything you don't like without saying the actual reason why you don't like it. For example, KolibriOS is older than git. FASM is older than KolibriOS. Should we drop them too?

    Can actions do an incremental build like the current setup? Do I understand correctly that SVN doesn't support several repos on one server? I don't see many people reviewing this PR.

    Again, not cool and not modern don't sound like technical reasons.

    About three times longer, with many dots and a hyphen. Just harder to read.

    Can we just replace svn revisions with git hashes and keep using our current 0.7.7.0 scheme for releases?
