[geeklog-devel] Getting the GSoC results into the main Geeklog repository

So now that GSoC 2009 is over (everybody passed, btw - yay!) - obviously
we're now looking into integrating our student's work into the main
Geeklog repository (where applicable). How do we do that?

My suggestion would be to do it incrementally. We should first try and
get the student repositories in sync with the main Geeklog one again.
Once that is done, we can work out the kinks in all the new features
(again, on the separate repos). And then we'll look into merging things
into the main repository.

This could very well mean that we roll out features incrementally, i.e.
over several Geeklog releases.

Does that sound okay? The "all in one" post-GSoC releases of the past
years have always been very late and some features were ready for public
consumption earlier than others but had to wait for the latecomers.
Having all the new features in separate repositories gives us a chance
to work out the kinks there and only ship what's really working. And at
the same time it should be easy to keep the repositories in sync with
the main one so that a late addition doesn't cause any extra work.


bye, Dirk
