Describe what to do in order to migrate code from svn to git

  == Request a new Git repository ==
  Requesting git repositories is managed by an Infra self-service which is located at
Go to that website an request the new git repository. Note, that the repository name has to
be the component name. So for example for Commons CLI, the repository name had to be "cli".
This generated "commons-cli" as generated name.
+ == Migrate code to new repository ==
+ 1. Clone the new Git repository: git clone
+ 2. Add the already existing GitHub mirror as new remote: git remote add GitHub
+ 3. Create the master branch: git checkout -b master
+ 4. Add all commits from the mirrored trunk branch from the GitHub mirror to the master branch:
git fetch github trunk && git merge github/trunk
+ 5. Add all other branches and tags to your local repository
+ 6. push everything to the new repository
  == Update pom and website ==
