==== Things to tweak in the repository conversion ====
:Author names/emails: see this thread: http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_name=20100807142903.71414e9c%40annie .
:From Fingolfin: http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_name=AA4D038A-B948-43F0-87D7-22A2818BA3ED%40quendi.de
==== Where to host the GIT repository? ====
* SF.Net Internal GIT hosting? - Not ideal. Features lacking.
* From Fingolfin: One thing to settle is where to host the master repository: I for once would like using github, due to the many nice features it offers, like very easy code review. (FYI, I registered a scummvm project account there some time ago, in case we want to use it, and to prevent others from (ab)using it). [http://github.com/scummvm ScummVM on GITHub].
Some of our devs already use github for their own ScummVM trees, and since github makes it super-easy for anybody to branch from another user's tree, and then push changes back (resp. file a "pull request)", this seems ideal to me.
 
==== Alternatives ====
 
* The mercurial client, which is written in Python, can perhaps provide a better user experience for Windows, together with tortoise-hg. Relevant guides can be found here:
