[Speex-dev] Moving to Git

Hi everyone,

I'm currently attempting to move Speex development over to Git. Because
Git is distributed, I means that anyone would be able to do development
and commits without having to get write access (and I can just pull from
them). There are of course other advantages, like sane handling of
branches and tags, local history, ...

Now, one of the disadvantages is that Git currently requires a POSIX
setup and thus needs Cygwin to run on Windows. For that reason, I'll
keep updating the current svn -- at least until I find something
satisfactory for Windows users (suggestions are welcome). For those
would would like to try it, just download and install git 1.5 (git 1.4
isn't recommended) and do:

% git clone http://mf-iii.xiph.org/~jm/speex.git speex

Note that the above repository is only a temporary location and it will
move in the future.

Any comments?
