Bugzilla considering moving to git
The Bugzilla Project is currently considering moving our source code repository from Bazaar (bzr) to git. Part of the impetus for this is that Mozilla is trying to get out of the business of hosting every version control system known to man (which they currently do, or close to it anyway) and bzr is one of the low-hanging fruit (Bugzilla is the only Mozilla project using it). There’s also a lot of feeling out there that mirroring to GitHub may make contributions easier for new contributors. The general consensus on the thread so far is that we should do it; the main point of contention is how long to keep it mirrored in bzr after it moves.
What’s your take on it? We’d appreciate anyone who currently works on Bugzilla or is contemplating it to join in on the discussion.
