[Scummvm-devel] Subversion is here!

the SF.net Subversion beta program started today. As you may already
know, I managed to get us onto the pariticipant list.
So we can start using Subversion now if we want to ! I only have to
enable it. For details on the server, check out <https://
However, I recommend not to rush this, to avoid trouble / confusion.
My suggestion is that, unless there are general objections to the
whole switch, we switch during the coming weekend (or later, if we
determine there are problems with this). SF.net allows us to
automatically migrate our existing CVS repository to Subversion (note
that the CVS repos will always stay there). This can take a couple
hours, considering the size of our CVS repos... The plan would be to
not let people commit in that time, and then we all start using
Subversion at the same time.
They also provide various default hook scripts (for validating MIME
types -- think "binary flag for pictures"; for commit mails; etc.).
Furthermore, we may want to setup something like svn2cvs (http://
svn2cvs.tigris.org/) to keep our anon CVS archive up-to-date;
although I'd prefer not to do that and instead tell our users to use
anon Subversion access instead.
What do you think, folks?
