Hi there,

the switch from Subversion to Git has been completed, you can access our 
Git repositories like this:

Anonymous checkout:
  git clone git://git.haiku-os.org/haiku
  git clone git://git.haiku-os.org/buildtools

Developer with commit access:
  git clone ssh://git.haiku-os.org/haiku
  git clone ssh://git.haiku-os.org/buildtools

In case you'd already done a git clone earlier (from the read-only 
repositories), you should be able to use them for committing, too.

The subversion repository will be kept around, but it has been switched to 

During the next couple of days, we'll publish some more info about how to 
use git, but for starters, please have a look here:


Our repositories are available on Github and Gitorious, so it should be 
easy to get a fork there for your own work on Haiku (be it experimental 
stuff or just because you haven't got commit access to our central 
repository yet).

As the switch to Git changes the general workflow, it is expected that 
we'll need to refine the process, and maybe parts of the infrastructure, 
too. I suppose we'll learn on our journey to distributed development.

I'll be working on improving some infrastructural details today (rewriting 
Trac links to changesets and getting the vendor-repository in a better 
shape), but please shout if you've got any questions or experience anything
