Submission + - Too Perfect a Mirror (

Carewolf writes: Jeff Mitchell writes on his blog about what almost became "The Great KDE Disaster Of 2013". It all started as simple update of the root git server and ended up with a corrupt git repository automatically mirrored to every mirror and deleting every copy of most KDE repositories. It ends by discussing what the problem is with git --mirror and how you can avoid similar problems in the future.
