Ladies and gentlemen, murlocs and gronns, orcs and elves!
The time has finally come for the Arcemu project to move over to GIT!
We've been considering this move for a long time, and actually even announced our intention at one time, but due to various reasons we couldn't make this move until now.
Why are we moving to GIT?
GIT was designed for speed and massive open-source collaboration, so according to Linus Torvalds it's much better for us.
Ofc based only on his word we wouldn't make such a move, so we had some tests, and it is indeed faster to work with, because everyone has a local copy of the entire repository.
It also makes collaboration a lot easier, since lots of people already transitioned to GIT and are reluctant to use SVN again.
Where are we moving to?
We chose Github as our host, it's very popular, and easy to use.
The Arcemu GIT repository is already up on github: https://github.com/arcemu/arcemu
It is already a fully working repository, converted from the SVN, so our full history is up there!
You can read-only clone using the following URL: git://github.com/arcemu/arcemu.git
The move is now complete, the documentation on the wiki has been updated ( although it can use some more work ), the SVN repository has been reset and I've put a notification there for people who might not understand why their SVN client is downloading revision 0 all of the sudden!
