Does that really work? After about 60% git clone I get an RPC error or something like that. The download stops. Git is a dubious technology. SVN was much more stable.
Well you were lucky with svn then.
I had frequent aborts, when  I switched between fpc branches on svn. Or worse, it finished, but the result was broken (i.e. comparing the switched data to a new fresh checkout had diffs).
Of course, my personal experience may not be representative.

Anyway, if it is an issues with a server or firewall then it's not really git or fpc, it's just the choice of hoster that came with it.

I don't know if there will be a fpc mirror on github. If so that might work better (diff hoster)

The only time that I had problems with svn was when trying to use a non-standard program to create and maintain a local clone of the server... I forget the details.

Without wanting to take sides on this particular bit of the argument: is a randomly dropped session likely to be more harmful to a version of a project checked out from svn, or to an attempted clone (shallow or otherwise) from git?

Using SVN on sf.net was also horrible, and the FPC server is saintly in comparison. A cloud problem, possibly.

I also don't recognize the problem Martin describes, but I rarely switched branches on checkouts, usually having a fixes and trunk checkout of both projects.

Normal SVN checkouts always worked for me with cabled systems. On wireless a checkout (as opposed to an update)  didn't run to completion sometimes. Another update or in rare cases a "cleanup" fixed it.

So, how do you link the accounts between gitlab bug tracker and the old bug tracker?

I see many people have "Note by Florian @FPK2" kind of links there, but no obvious way to link the two.

There used to be a notification period when you could send a mail with your mantis and gitlab account names which were later matched in an automated conversion process.

One can always do a "Search" for fpk2 in gitlab, which in this case leads to three members, the first of which is @FPK2 :)

Of course, for more common nicks, the search result might have thousands of users, which makes it a "little" unwieldly ...

It is not possible for us to create issues in another persons name. Gitlab will not allow that (for obvious reasons).

We announced a while back, that people who wanted their GitLab name mentioned in their issues/notes, should report it to us. Those who did were mentioned.

In either case you can search for the mantis or gitlab name.

For "reported issues"  search for (including the quotes):
Code: Text  [Select][+][-]
  1. "<small>Martin"
Where martin is the mantis user name.

Or for notes and reports
Code: Text  [Select][+][-]
  1. "** Martin"
(This time the "full name" from mantis)

For monitored issues, search for (including the quotes / mind the space too):
Code: Text  [Select][+][-]
  1. "» @martin_frb"
  2. "» martin"
The "@" is the GitLab name, the other is mantis. (the mantis name only works, if no GitLab name was given)

Question: Should the bootstrappers be available on Gitlab?

Currently only accessable via FTP, I think.
ftp://ftp.freepascal.org/pub/fpc/dist/3.2.0/bootstrap/
