Re: [argouml-dev] ArgoUML and GitHub

Message Hi,

I'd certainly like to help with this, but I don't have a lot of spare
time - as everyone else here, I guess. (I will be on a (business) trip
almost all of June, for instance.)

Anyways, it should also discussed what is being moved and how projects
are organized.

1. I'd propose to create a new user "argouml" and then create several
repositories for the different projects.

2. I think we should not move the bug tracker; there are too many
tickets open that nobody ever dealt with and the new issue system would
instantaneously become a mess. If someone wants to fix open bugs, check
tigris.org for that. If someone enters a bug again on GitHub, it means
"someone really cares about this".

3. We should decide on the CI issue before making the move.

4. Is everyone familiar with the workflow of git? That is, topic
branches and Pull Requests? I'd propose only very few people get access
to the main repositories and they then accept the PRs.

Best regards
Christian
