Switching PiTiVi’s main git repository

Due to public demand, the official main repository for PiTiVi is now git.gnome.org/pitivi instead of git://git.pitivi.org/git/pitivi.git

This has many advantages:

  • It reduces confusion.
  • It prevents potential contributors from thinking we’re a dead project or something. We’re a killer project, that’s completely different.
  • No need to manage two “official” repositories (one for development and one for translations) anymore. No more strange merges to sync the repositories.
  • Those who want email notifications can subscribe through GNOME’s “commits-list”
  • We don’t have five times the word “git” when we do a clone of pitivi. You know, we were worried that people were not aware of the fact that they’re using git, turns out that’s not the case ;)
  • People might stop thinking that this is some kind of French conspiracy. Well, many contributors are francophones and we do have plans for world domination, but that’s entirely unrelated.

I updated all the relevant website and wiki pages accordingly. No more excuses now: ladies and gentlemen, start hacking (but make sure to do so on the “ges” branch).

    Just wanted to thank you for the much-needed laughs. :-)
