I wanted to put you two in touch with each other. Thanks for helping with the documentation/scripting of v1->v2 migration.
The difference between v1 and v2 versions of each cartridge mainly container changes in directory structure and a few
config changes. I would suggest creating a v1 and a v2 version of each cartridge and performing a diff to see the changes.
Origin release 1 defaults to v1 cartridges and latest code on master is v2. You can use vagrant to spin up a machine.
You may have to disable selinux for now. Im working with Dan Walsh to get a bug fixed in the selinux policy which
prevents creation of gears.
