I have been converting my repos this weekend - slowly because I was at 
the FOSDEM event all weekend. I used yet another migration technique 
(in-repo, instead of in a new one), because I had too many untracked 
files hanging around that I didn't want to miss by starting from a new 
repo. Our git wiki page gave me enough background information to 
understand the essence of what had to happen, so my variation worked 
fine as well after a couple of attempts.

Resetting the github repos and activating the master repos on are a big step forward in our way to full git 
migration. I'm very happy we are past that milestone now. A big thanks 
to all of you involved in getting us that far !
