Eric, are you aware of Stefan's wait state on Git support of vc-find-conflicted-file and is this something you are inclined to punt on?

You haven't heard much about it because the hard work is all done. I
have the scripts ready to go and need only about eight hours' notice
before pushing the button.

That is, assuming everyone has played nice and not embedded more bzr
revision numbers in ChangeLogs or revision comments - if someone
slipped on that then I will need to do another revision of the
conversion recipe and another conversion run (they take about eight
hours - it's a big repository).

You can pull a copy of the transition recipe and associated scripts from here:


I've documented the whole process; you can do a trial conversion yourself
if you care to try.

What I would like to do is grab hold of workflow documentation, assuming it exists, on how to use the converted git repo to build from current development sources and test it out on a few Mac systems.  Sounds like four pieces need to come together: 1) 24.4 gets released, 2) vc-find-conflicted-file has Stefan satisfied, 3) workflow documentation is updated and 4) you have pushed the button after being convinced it is time.  1) is in progress, 2) and 3) are in an unknown state, and 4) appears to be ready.  It would be good to get more insight into plans, if any, to address 2) and 3).
