It's been mentioned in the past that we're planning a switch from subversion to git. I've setup a git repo on Savannah that is now mirroring the svn tree. I've got a hook setup such that commits generate emails. They're currently being sent to qemu-commits although I can redirect to qemu-devel if that's desired.

For users, to get the latest QEMU bits, you would do:

$ git clone git://git.savannah.nongnu.org/qemu.git

For maintainers, Savannah has a getting started page that describes how to push commits at http://savannah.gnu.org/maintenance/UsingGit

The git repository is compatible with the repositories on kernel.org and repo.or.cz. All of the tags have been replicated and there is a stable_0_10 branch.

I think it would make sense to give people a couple days to verify that they can download the git tree properly before switching over, but I'd like to tentatively schedule the switching of the git tree to Friday at 5pm CST unless there are objections. Until then, please continue committing to the SVN tree.

There is also a web interface available at http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/qemu.git
