----------------------------------

             Summary: [GSoC] Add support for browsing remote Subversion repositories to Apache
Bloodhound
                 Key: COMDEV-86
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMDEV-86
             Project: Community Development
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Branko Čibej


Apache Bloodhound is a software development collaboration tool, including issue tracking,
wiki and repository browsing (see: http://bloodhound.apache.org). Bloodhound extends Trac
(http://trac.edgewall.org/) with multiple product support, advanced search functionality,
ticket relations, a simpler installer and sleeker user interface. Apache Bloodhound recently
graduated from the Apache Incubator as a stand-alone Apache project. 

Problem:

Trac (and therefore Bloodhound) effectively only supports Subversion repositories that are
on the same server as the Trac instance. More information about why this is and ways to get
around this are discussed in ​http://trac.edgewall.org/ticket/493.

Proposed solution:

Write a new repository connector for Apache Bloodhound (and Trac) that talks to remote Subversion
repositories.

Alternatively: Enhance ​remote svn plugin (http://www.meadowy.org/~gotoh/hg/remote-svn-plugin/)
to integrate it with Bloodhound (and latest Trac), multi-repository APIs and other features
included in Trac core since its ​last change.

Skills needed: 

Bloodhound and Trac are written in Python, so a moderate dose of Python programing skills
are required. Familiarity with Subversion internals and its Python bindings is also useful.
