[osg-users] Feedback/guidance sought on move of osgQt out into it's own project/repository

Hi All,

I've gone through the process of striping the osgQt repository from osg
only related files in it's history. This means rewriting commits and
removing unnecessary files from each commit. This is a long process.

I've added a commit removing non osgQt related examples.
I then listed all the files present in the repository giving me listing A.
I did a listing B of all files before Robert's removal of osg only files.
I kept only the files given by B - A in listing C.

I then issued a git command :
git filter-branch --index-filter 'git rm --cached --ignore-unmatch [files
in C]' HEAD

It was a long process : 3615 seconds (an hour) and even thought it seems
that the size of the repository hasn't gained any weight, there is no signs
of those listing C files.

The result is there

The main issue is that we now have 14240 different commits than the 14240
commit of osg. So there is no easy turning back into osg.
The size of a newly clone repository isn't smaller than Robert's original

We could remove history altogether and use git replace to start history
sooner than Dan's original commit

Any thoughts ?
