[mpich-devel] MPICH migration to git

MPICH developers,

The MPICH project has transitioned from using SVN as our version control system (VCS) to using git instead.  Details of the switch are described here:


Highlights from the document and the transition:

* Read-only git clones are available at http://git.mpich.org/mpich.git and git://git.mpich.org/mpich.git
* All critical history from SVN has been imported into the git history.
* The SVN server and its associated history are not going away, although it has been made read-only.

We continue to work through our documentation and automated processes (cron jobs, etc.) to update them to the new system.  Our trac instance will transition to understand the new VCS soon, although it currently displays only historical SVN data.

Please bear with us as we work through this transition period.  If you have trouble with the new setup, please contact dev at mpich.org or discuss at mpich.org for assistance.

The MPICH Team
