KiCad Switches To Git For Version Control

The moment all of you Git fans have been waiting for has finally arrived! As of August 21st, 2016 the official version control system for the development repository for KiCad is now Git instead of Bazaar. The decision was made to stick with Launchpad as the hosting site rather than move to Github in order to keep our existing bug tracker history. The development team decided that the Lauchpad Git integration had reached a sufficient level of maturity to make the switch. You can now directly clone the KiCad product branch using:

git clone https://git.launchpad.net/kicad

Hopefully there will be minimal issues as we move forward using Git. Please be patient as we integrate Git into our normal development process. For help configuring Git for Lauchpad, please see the Git help page on Launchpad.

Happy version controlling!

The KiCad development team.
