That option still lacks the problem of catching changes that have done on 8.0 afterwards the 9.0 branch is created. Or does this option allows to make merge on 9.0 from 8.0?

I think the git-filter option as described on the wiki is the best trade off :
  • we keep the history
  • we provide an easy way to see which modules have been migrated
  • it allows us to match the number of repo with the resources to manage them
  • it encourages collaboration
  • it still allows anyone to deploy with packages by generating them based on module version
Leonardo made a very interesting proposal that got lost in the thread, that I believe deserves consideration as a possible alternative to git-filter.
