Yup, at long last, we've got all the pieces in place so that you can use either CVS or Subversion for your RubyForge version control! Couple of things:
- You can see how it looks by poking around Curt Hibbs' Windows Ruby Installer project, which we converted over last week.
- To get your project switched from CVS to Subversion, please put a cvs-to-svn support request into the FIFO queue
- To start up a new project with Subversion as the version control system, just select it when you register the project.
- Undoubtedly there will be some "opportunities for excellence" as folks convert over; as always, we appreciate your feedback and your patience.
Getting it all set up was a bit of a job - installing Subversion, upgrading ViewCVS to the newly-named ViewVC (and updating SWIG), setting up the GForge Subversion plugin, and various other bits and pieces. But overall it wasn't bad - the Subversion documentation is pretty good and I had Mike Mason's excellent Subversion book to fill in the missing pieces.
Finally, a big thank you to Curt Hibbs for helping to test and troubleshoot this new feature!
