ITK/Release 4/Modularization/Transition Plan

From KitwarePublic
Jump to navigationJump to search

This page describes the plan for transforming the current Monolithic ITK repository into a Modularized one.

Major Dates

  • 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.
