Should we move the main ONNV gate to genunix.org to prevent .... from
shutting down Opensolaris?
One of the advantages of a distributed SCM system like Mercurial is that
every clone is a full copy of the source tree and can become a new root
if the contributing developers agree.
Exactly. genunix.org has such clone since oh, so long ago.
See http://hg.genunix.org/onnv-gate.hg This repo is no more than
10 minutes behind the upstream repo hosted at hg?opensolaris.org,
so I think we are in pretty good shape.
Every full clone of onnv-gate in existence could serve as the seed for a
new project; if the current "main tree" is destroyed or damaged,
developers merely need to identify one of the clones as the new main
tree and keep going.
Right.
