Subject Converting to Subversion
Date Fri, 10 Sep 2004 05:28:11 GMT
We are finally going to do the long talked about conversion to 
Subversion.  I expect this conversion to take place tomorrow or the 
next day.  When the conversion happens the Apache infrastructure team 
will lock down (convert to read-only) our cvs repository and create the 
new Subversion repository.  The existing incubator-geronimo repository 
will always be available, but all new development will happen in the 
Subversion repository.

The Subversion website can be found here:

There are several downloads available from the Subversion website, 
including RPMs for Linux and executables for Windows.  Back when we 
first discussed this, I among others raised concerns about Subversion 
on Mac OS X.  This is no longer a problem. There are binaries available 
via Fink for OS X and I have been using it for a few days now.

Finally, the Subversion project has a superb *free* book available 
"Version Control with Subversion" online 
(  This book is published by O'Reilly 
Media and is available in paperback from most book stores.

If you have any problems using Subversion, you can post to this list, 
but we recommend that you join the mailing 
list, and read the Subversion Book and FAQ 
(  You can also ask 
questions about Subversion on IRC at, channel #svn.
