Migrating to Git: Let's Git this party started

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]

The Eclipse and Equinox projects began their Git migration shortly after the Indigo release. Two CVS repositories. Ten years of history. Transformed into 25 Git repositories. What challenges did we face while migrating our large code base? How did the build process change? How did we massage the repositories? How did we accommodate platform specific binaries and trim large repositories? How did we help our committers during the transition? These stories and more, including commentary from your favourite committers. I'd like to provide a committer's perspective on the good and bad that came out of our transition on top of the releng perspective.
