Are there any plans with the Twisted repo from GitHub?
Looks like it was not updated in a while.
Garret Heaton is already doing a 15min mirroring of master/trunk
Both repos have a couple of forks and it would be nice if all forks
are from the same repo.
I prefer and use GitHub code browsing since it is much faster than
Twisted's official Trac code browsing.
I now see that Tom Prince has already created git branches on GitHub
for the ticket he is reviewing. Many thanks!
I have already started creating git branches on GitHub for all my
patched for Twisted. I found it much pleasant to send a "live patch"
URL rather than a static attached diff file.
Ex live diff:
Append .diff to the url and you have a patch file:
As a non-commiter for SVN this makes my life much more easier.
Manually creating diff and attaching them to a slow Trac can cause a
bit of frustration... but I always find to hard to follow a SVN branch
that was created for at ticket and manually apply diffs on local
I find it very hard to work in parallel on more than 4 tickets and
tracking diffs outside of SVN/GIT is not fun.
I understand that moving from SVN to GIT is not easy and if core
developers can create and share SVN branches there is no big
For me, as a non-commiter, contributing to Twisted is not fun.
Sorry for bothering you with my frustrations. I hope that you find the
feedback useful, otherwise feel free to ignore it :)
