ITK/Release 4/Modularization/Transition Plan
< ITK | Release 4 | ModularizationJump to navigationJump to search
This page describes the plan for transforming the current Monolithic ITK repository into a Modularized one.
- The target date for transforming the repository is Friday March 4th 2011
- The repository should be reopen for normal activity by Tuesday March 8th 2011
Git Repository Conversion
- The transition will happen in the same Git repository that we currently use.
- The transition will happen as a big commit that will mostly move files around to new directories
- Pending Gerrit patches should (for the most part) find their way into the corresponding files after the conversion
- Except for changes to CMakeLists.txt files, since most of them will be replaced with new ones
Advice to Develoepers
- Developers who have pending changes in local repositories are strongly encouraged to
- Commit them to local branches
- Push those to Gerrit (under the tag "WIP" (Work in Progress))
- The Gerrit patches should be mergeable after the conversion, and the Kitware team will be available to help merge them for you.
