      Description

      The Tomcat community is planning to migrate from svn to git as the primary vcs for Tomcat 9.0.x, 8.5.x and 7.0.x

      Subject to the successful completion of the current vote, we would like to perform this migration during European office hours on Tuesday 26th Feb 2019.

      We would like to perform some repository reorganisation as part of this migration.

      The proposed plan is:
      - When the project indicates it is ready, Infra disables the svn->git replication for:
        - tomcat/trunk -> git://git.apache.org/tomcat.git
        - tomcat/tc8.5.x./trunk -> https://github.com/apache/tomcat85.git
        - tomcat/tc7.0.x./trunk -> https://github.com/apache/tomcat70.git

      - Infra makes git://git.apache.org/tomcat.git (and https://github.com/apache/tomcat) read/write for me only

      - I'll perform the re-organisation (essentially merging all 3 repos in to tomcat.git and doing some re-naming)

      - The Tomcat community will check the migrated repo in read-only mode

      - When the project indicates all is well, Infra makes git://git.apache.org/tomcat.git (and https://github.com/apache/tomcat) read/write for all Tomcat committers

      - When the project indicates it is safe to do so, remove https://github.com/apache/tomcat85.git , https://github.com/apache/tomcat70.git and the associated GitHub mirrors

      If any of the above looks problematic just let us know and we can figure out an alternative.

      Thanks,

      Mark
