We have completed transitioning RT and a few other strongly-coupled
repositories (rtfm, rtir, rt2-to-rt3, and DBIx-SearchBuilder) to Git.
The respective subversion directories will remain accessible but
read-only until October 6th (90 days from now), at which point they will
be removed.

Commits are automatically mirrored from BPS' repository to github, at
http://github.com/bestpractical/rt  The process for obtaining the most
current version of RT 3.8 is thus now:
    git clone git://github.com/bestpractical/rt.git
    cd rt
    git checkout 3.8-trunk

This is available at http://github.com/bestpractical/git-aegis-import if
any of you happen to have historal code entrenched in Aegis.

The dust bunnies are unfortunately _not_ available on github; if you
wish to clone from them, get in touch with us directly and we'll work
something out.
