Hi all,

I have set up each plugin on Github. Tonight I will be doing a last svn2git pull and putting the latest and greatest onto Github.

Could we please not do anymore updates to svn and start pushing to Github for plugin updates as of tomorrow?

There are a few plugins I haven't pulled across due to numerous reasons. These are:
- clickatell_api - not sure about this one and thought whoever created might like to host it themselves
- empty plugin - I wonder if this should be in the JojoCMS as a tutorial/teaching tool.
- jojo_autoresponder - I never set this up correctly and I need to make quite a few changes to it. I was thinking of putting this under my account too.
- jojo_forms - for my mind this has been fully incorporated into the current jojo_contact, or am I wrong?
- jojo_gallery1 & 2 - Am I right in assuming that these aren't being developed anymore and are superseded by gallery3?

Let me know if I have missed something. After tonight, I will update the download page of this site.
If you not living on the edge you taking up too much space.

I have updated the website with links to the Plugins Github page. All plugins on Github are as per latest svn commits.

Please use the Github versions from now on.

Awesome, thanks man. I (and I'm sure the others too) appreciate the time and effort you put into the migration.

Hopefully we'll attract a little more attention to the project on Github :D

I've created a plugin that pulls in all the other official Jojo plugins... I added it to the JojoCMS Github page here.

Downloading all required plugin repos was taking a long time (it's not just one command on each server/workstation). Grabbing one repo that gets 100 seems easier than grabbing 50-60.

Read the ReadMe file. It has instructions that will avoid you wondering why the plugin files haven't been fetched yet.

The original intent was for people to be able to clone this plugin then remove the submodules (Git's equivalent to SVN's externals) as they didn't need them. However removing submodules isn't straightforward.

Check it out if you want... if it's useful to any of you then great, otherwise if you think it's a bad idea then we can remove it from there. No hard feelings.

Do you guys store repos on your servers? Or upload from your workstations?

For Harvey: Github for Windows.

It has only just been launched and provides a very solid way to manage Git repositories in Windows. It should save all Windows users a lot of hassle since they don't have native SSH support.

Also, it looks pretty.
