Last few hours I tried converting docutils history from SVN to GIT. And the
results are at https://github.com/purnank/docutils_try1
- The sandbox is not imported
- Only "docutils" python code has been imported
- Old perl code has not been imported
- Based on emails on this list, and using @users.sourceforge.net, @
If there is no need for GIT, kindly ignore my email.
If there is a need for GIT, I am sure that some of the original developers
may want to use correct email IDs as the contirbuters. I can collaborate
with Docutils developers and volunteers based on replies and then create a
newer SVN to GIT Clone.
I started liking it, then it became a hobby.
Soon it became a necessity. Today, I am addict to it.

Well, I'm certainly not one of the most active developers, but AFAICS
it is good practice in Docutils to start new / experimental code in
In your case I understand that you (think you) need to modify the
original sources. Since I slowly get to know Docutils code a bit
better: Are you sure this is necessary? Docutils has a great
architecture and there are *lots* of hooks you can hang your code
onto. May be you can do without modifying the original sources and
just write some extensions?
