Tailor hacks for better darcs → git conversion
|This page is here only for historical reasons. You probably want to have a look at darcs-fast-export.|
The tailor subdir is a modified version of tailor, it contains several ugly hacks to work around problems during a darcs to git conversion. I plan to create proper fixs for these issues and submit them to upstream. Basically these hacks allowed me to convert a repo with more than 25.000 (relatively small, but containing conflicts) patches properly and in less than 8 hours (or so).
The tests subdir contains repos with typical problems, they can be used later for proper bugfixes.
The tailor-wrap repo is the 'main' repo, you should first get that one. It
contains a wrapper for both darcs and git to work around several problems and
to speed up the conversion. Read the
