We are about to migrate from ClearCase (Both Base and UCM) to GIT. Are there any papers or scripts out there that can help?

Hi, we are 100 memeber team working on one Java application. We are following Agile process and every week we will have a release for bug fixes and code changes.
Parallely we are also working on developement release on same code base.
Version Control tool is SVN.
What are the pros and cons of stable trunk strategy (day to day commits on release branch, merge to trunk after production release) vs unstable trunk stategy (day to day commits on trunk, cut a branch when ready for release).
We have monthly release cycles and frequent emergency bug fixes there after. The emergency bug fixes sometimes can be multiple times during a day. There are about 10-15 developers for each project.
how to configure users to only see their projects they are assigned. When I assign users I want them to only be able to view their assigned projects. I know the users can filter their projects within the workbench, but I want it done in the Administrator.
Ideally, I'd like to take a unix shell programming course that is offered in the classroom but I would consider an online course as well. I have ten years of release engineering experience but I was laid off five years ago and I want to work in unix/linux release engineering again or in even switch to system administration.TIA,

We are upgrading from Harvest 12.1 to 12.5. We have found that HarRefresh is no longer supported by OpenMake or CA. Currently, HarRefresh (in conjunction with Harvest) is a package based product – code within a package is promoted whenever the package is promoted. Is there another solution out there that will move code from Harvest to a server with just the files and version of those files within the package.
There are a lot of COTS products nowadays that can be customised through configuration and scripting which can significantly change the functionality, so are these still COTS or are they MOTS (Modified-of-the-shelf) or are they something else?
My specific question is about ServiceNow where you can modify the CMDB structure, change and add workflows; create scripts and even change the layout of screens etc. All of this is done through ServiceNow itself and you do not need to develop any 'external' code. Remedy is another tool where this happens.
I would like to extract all the dimensios products and assocaited worksets in one shot from browser client (admin console). Please let me know, how to do? i have the steps to extrct from desktop client.
We have a code review tool Atlassian Fisheye+Crucible already implemented, but we are using this with Perforce as our version control tool. Since Perforce has another code review tool "SWARM" we'd like to evaluate this tool. But need to know the benefits of using this tool over Crucible with fisheye.
SOme of the benefits I know is:
A new project we got will force us to add a few more testers for the duration of the project (estimated around 8 months). We will probably outsource this extra testing alongside us. My question really has to do with any advice or tool anyone of you uses or knows of that will be a smart way to manage this effort?
Looking for recommendations on Inventory Management/RMA Tracking software that integrate with Arena Solutions
I'm have promarily used Subversion in the past, and the structure we used was:
/branches - Self evident name for branch management
/int - Integration branches
/projectA_effort_q4_2014 - Integration branch for release on q4 of 2014
/usr - Individual engineers branches
/fred - Fred's set of branches
/some_bug - Fred's branched from somewhere to fix some bug
/sally - Sally's set of branches
/some_feature - Sally's branched from somewhere to add some feature
