Source code repository to be moved
« on: November 23, 2005, 03:57:25 pm »
As already discussed, the source code repository will move from sourceforge-CVS to berlios-SVN to take advantage of the SVN versioning system.
The move will occur the following Saturday, on November 26th.

All developers with CVS write-access are requested to commit any pending changes by Friday night. On Saturday, CVS write-access will be revoked and only anonymous checkouts/updates will be allowed. When the migration to SVN has been completed, CVS access will be completely disabled.
We estimate that the migration will be completed the same day, i.e. Saturday. When it is done, it will be announced here.

C::B has already been registered with Berlios and the project page is located at https://developer.berlios.de/projects/codeblocks/.
Notice that we 're only moving the source code repository. Nothing else. We 'll continue using Sourceforge's trackers (bugs, patches, feature requests) and the file release system. On Berlios we will only keep the source code.

Finally, notice that the move will affect only those that used CVS to checkout C::B. Regular users that just use the distributed binary releases are not affected in any way.

On behalf of the Code::Blocks Team,
Yiannis.
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

Getting ready for it... at least by downloading TortoiseSVN :P

I wish you a smooth migration.

Ahh, so I can finally uninstall TortoiseCVS saturday? Finally I'll get to see all of the TortoiseSVN overlay icons :).
Any chance of enabling the SVN repository already (albeit empty) so I can prepare a checkout and won't have to remember the repository URL untill then?

Don't overreact, a little Photoshopping/GIMPing/whatever and it'll be a perfectly fine generic turtle :P.

I've worked yesterday evening on preparing my machine for that. I've tried to get it to work with the cb_svn plugin and finally I was able to manage. A question remains: I am using the RapidSVN GUI which works but compared to what I'm used to with WinCVS is (of cours) a bit rough.

Might I ask what (besides TortoiseSVN for several reason) you guys are using? Is there maybe another GUI that is better? This could also lead in a recommodation that we could put to the WiKi ("Connecting to the SVN repository" or so...).

With best regards,

Morten.

Well, at present I 'm using TortoiseSVN under windows and command-line under linux (or RapidSVN if I want to get the big picture).
I hope that the svn plugin will be usable shortly after the move so we can have one more option :)

Svn has a much easier command-line syntax than cvs though. Don't be afraid of what gives you absolute power ;)

One more thing:
All C::B developers please prepare for the move. This means create your user accounts at berlios, if you don't have one already, and send them to me :)

So, I know I said stop commiting changes by Friday night but I 'd like to ask you to stop commiting at your earliest possible convenience.
That's because I will need to get the nightly cvsroot tarball from sourceforge tomorrow and, depending on timezone differences, not all changes might make it in if we don't leave a 24-hour slack...

CVS repository write-access revoked for everyone. Only anonymous CVS works now.
