Hello Tom,

I apologize that this ticket has languished for so long. Savannah is really not set up for many small personal repositories. I have been hearing rumors that there will be a GNU GitLab instance at some point in the future. If so then I would look into it since GitLab is set up much better for the many small personal project model.

But in any case one of us should have either picked it up and done it or closed it as a won't do. It was wrong of us to have let it sit for so long without comment. It was rude and I apologize.

Therefore I have gone ahead and have created the following 25 subprojects that you requested.


What would you like to have in the git description files? Rather than "Unnamed repository".

> Bob, I know you from nmh.

You must have me confused with another Bob. I have no association with the nmh project. I have always admired the mh design as truly embodying the Unix Philosophy. I have often regretted that I never used it. It is still on my bucket list to learn to use and one of these days I will get around to it.

Subject: git repos wanted for

I plan to convert my project's repo from svn to a number of git repos.

I think this bash mkdir command may help you:

mkdir {arith,auth,backup,bash,cm,cygwin,file,jobs,log_parse,m4,mail,main,make,net,perl5,processes,regex,sh,ssh,sys,tex,text,ticklers,time,web}

I need git repos named after each item in the above list.

The project's dir structure was influenced by 'slashpackage'. It's
broken up into mostly independent "packages", each needs
it's own git repo.

Here are the 25 repo names I need ( "arith", "auth", "backup", "bash" ... ):

rodmant@epjdn:/usr/local/share/3reu/7Rq/package/cur $ find . -maxdepth 1 -type l|grep -v priv|sort

I'm in no rush for this.
Sorry, there are too many; I should combine - but this is what I have now.

I explain the project here:

I strongly believe in GNU FLOSS ideals; and appreciate having this project on savannah!

Bob, I know you from nmh. Thanks for all your work!
