Subject Re: [Discussion] Switch to Git?
Date Thu, 14 Sep 2017 15:45:57 GMT
Hi -

Here is a difference between Git and SVN that could be important.

In GIT you check out the whole repository.
In SVN you can check out parts.

Another would be does SVN vs. GIT prevent new developers from volunteering?

Historical note - when OpenOffice came to Apache it had just been moved to Mercurial...
