Now Konversation has also switched to git.
Peter mentioned it being unfortunate that there was not a way to build Subversion and git modules with the same tool. Except that there is, and has been since October (and even before in the summer if you like unreleased code). kdesvn-build. Yes, I know I still need to rename it, I’ll get to that eventually ;)
Anyways, here’s what I added to my existing kdesvn-buildrc to build konversation:
module konversation repository git://gitorious.org/konversation/konversation.git branch master end module
Now one catch is that scripts (including Michael Jansen’s build tool, last I’d heard) seem to have less success running git than doing so at the command line :-(. If you do end up manually cloning the git repository then make sure you’re using the trunk version of kdesvn-build to avoid git errors later.
One possible workaround is to use the HTTP protocol for the repository instead of the git:// version, but that’s less efficient so I’d really prefer to find a way to make git always work from scripts instead.
Anyways, congrats to the Konversation developers on continuing to blaze the git trail for KDE.
