All three source packages that are maintained by us (boinc, boinc-app-seti, 
and kboincspy) are now in Git repositories. And as it was before with 
Subversion, notifications of all commits are sent to the 
pkg-boinc-commits at lists.alioth.debian.org mailing list (BTW: this list also 
receives notifications of updates of BOINC* wiki pages). The repositories can 
be browsed web-based at the following URLs:


I'm slowly documenting how to use and work with them at: 
If you're unsure about pushing your commits directly to the repositories on 
git.debian.org please send patches to this mailing list instead (git 
format-patch --help) while getting comfortable with Git. And last but not 
least, please do not commit to the trunk/, tags/, and branches/ directories 
in our Subversion repository any more.
