Derick Rethans' Blog: Xdebug on github

Derick Rethans' Blog: Xdebug on github
As Derick Rethans notes in his latest post, the Xdebug project is now on github and can be found under his account.I've just opened my Xdebug repository on github. Importing my old SVN repository was a bit of a task. With the help of Ole Marius Smestad I managed to cook up a bash script to import and fix-up the repository. In the meanwhile I've learned more about git than I ever wanted to know, but still not enough.Besides the source for Xdebug itself, you'll also notice repositories for the Xdebug...

Keeping all of the contributors to your project informed and involved is a task to itself, but this should be only half of...

Xdebug on github
Xdebug on github London, UK Wednesday, June 22nd 2011, 21:47 BST I've just opened my Xdebug repository on github. Importing my old SVN repository was a bit of a task. With the help of Ole Marius Smestad I managed to cook up a bash script to import and fix-up the repository. In the meanwhile I've learned more about git than I ever wanted to know, but still not enough. I maintain that, although git is very powerful, it is also a lot less intuitive than SVN (or even CVS). In any case, Xdebug is now on...
