First of all, I like code::blocks very much and would like to thank the devs and contributors. But, as it often happens, there are a couple of annoyances that I want (and believe I can) fix and contribute patches.
The thing is, code::blocks uses SVN as its revision control system. Which happened to be a game-breaker (not to be rude, but it's been hard to find an active SVN repo for last couple of years).
My question is: have the devs considered moving to git? I've seen arguments on this forum from early 2010s and even before about its limited support on Windows (which is quite frankly not the case now) and lack of GUI (same here, there are plenty of them now). And there's github with its insane user base.
Of course this is only a suggestion (a question even). It just feels more natural for an occasional contributor like myself (and many other githubers) to clone the required development branch, play with it on a local machine (possibly breaking commits and fixing them after without publishing the branch in a broken state) and then submit a pull request for an automated merge. And it's easy.
I guess it would be unnecessary to go with the "why my cat thinks git is better" thing. It's just my opinion that the development of code::blocks could become faster and more people would contribute patches/PRs were it git-driven.
P. S.: I will, of course, look into the aforementioned "annoyances" and try to provide patches if I happen to fix them.
P. P. S.: Please excuse me if that sounds like another "svn sucks lets use git it's 2046 already" post.
