Git migration helpers

The workflow for migrating from Subversion to Git is the following:

  1. Generate the list of repository candidates

    $ ./tooling/scm/scripts/ > repo-candidates.txt

  2. Create the remote repositories using the ASF self-service git tool

    $ ./tooling/scm/scripts/ -r < repo-candidates.txt

Creating a repository can take up to one hour, so do this well in advance

  1. Extract the modules in individual repositories

    $ ./tooling/scm/scripts/ -r < repo-candidates.txt

Also validate that the repositories created using step 2 are now live.

  1. Push the local changes to the remote repositories

    $ ./tooling/scm/scripts/ -p < repo-candidates.txt
