This is very cool and very welcomed.   I use git daily and think this is a very good move.

Can we assume that the svn repo will stay up for some time? I have ansible scripts (ansiblework.com) that install exist on amazon ec2 instances and will convert this to doing so from git.  However I may not convert over to git for a couple of weeks are we are in the final planning phase to go live with a new public site with exist-db as the backend.  Too many other things to work on before go live.

In consideration of this statement in the readme file
Note In the above example, we switch the checked out branch of eXist from "develop" to "master". We are making use of GitFlow for eXist, and as such "develop" is our current stable work in progress which will eventually become the next release version, whereas "master" is always the last released version. The choice of which to use is entirely yours.

Will there be a way to clone a specific version of exist-db via git?  Will you tag versions and push the tags or will this ability not be there?  Also is there a file in the repo that contains the lastest version that is easily parsed?

Thanks
Eric P

It is my absolute pleasure to announce that all of the eXist-db source
code and associated projects have now been migrated from Subversion on
SourceForge over to Git at GitHub https://github.com/eXist-db/exist.

There is a good start to the documentation on how to work with the
code from GitHub, take a look here -

The main changes (apart from Git), are that:

1) Where we had one Subversion repository before we now have several
Git repositories. The main code base for eXist is now in the "exist"
repo on our GitHub. For the exact mappings between Subversion and Git

2) We no longer allow direct commits to our repositories. Rather we
make use of the excellent "Pull Request" functionality of GitHub. So
if you would like to contribute, simply fork our repo, do your work
and send us a Pull Request.

3) We are now using GitFlow on the main "exist" Git repo. Note this is
not yet used for our other Git repos. This may appear to be difficult
at first, but it is actually relatively simple and should allow us to
better understand change and hopefully make the release process easier
and more frequent. You can find more about this here:

Enjoy!

Adam.
