The plan changed a little along the way. First, you'll see that the Git repository doesn't have any history. We choose to start from a clean state to have a relatively small repository to clone. The full history of MuseScore development since 2002 will be kept on the old SVN but this SVN repository will not be updated anymore.
The source code has also been reorganised a bit by Werner. Some heavy directories are gone (scriptgen, manual) and we will find a way to provide the features without commiting binaries in the repository. Others directories have been move to the thirdparty directory. The Makefile are now at the same level than the full tree. You can find a decription of the tree on the GitHub page.
Moving to git also means we will have to change some things we are used to.
First the Changelog is dead. Please provide detailed commit message and reference the issues like we used to do in the Changelog. The commit messages will be used to create the release notes.
We used to talk about a commit as a "revision", and note a revision like rXXXX. This is no more possible with Git. In the issue tracker and to communicate between us, we will use the short SHA1 signature of a commit instead.
