Hi Pavel,

I volunteered to do this some time ago, just like for DIALS, and would still be happy to do this. 
We can do the move slowly, so allow users (developers) with a git repository while development still happens in SVN for say a couple of weeks, and I would be happy to run the git support for that time and for the aftermath of the move.

Best wishes

Hey there!

Well I guess I say something even though I don't have much to say really. I've been contributing to CCTBX for the past 13 years, so I feel like this conversation is not too irrelevant to me to say the least.

I don't have strong opinion about staying with svn vs moving to git. I routinely contribute to CCTBX (which is SVN-based) and I routinely contribute to my other activity - Q|R (Quantum Refinement, which is hosted by GitHub). I'm comfortable with both environments as I'm using only the minimal functionality of both: check in, check out, diff.. 
period. I'm not interested in branching/etc sophistication; this is just because the way I structure my workflow..

My current understanding is that moving CCTBX to use git boils down to:
- actually someone doing it; AND
- taking good proper responsible care of the aftermath (if any).

So far no-one volunteered to embrace this challenge, as far as I know.

In summary I think we should move to git, at least to follow the vector of progress.

All the best,
