    porting reposilite - is svn still the way to go?

    Hi, I'm in the process of porting reposilite, a lightweight maven repository server and maven proxy. While I have worked with ports some time ago, I am not sure if svn is still the way to go. Somehow I'm sure to have read that it has been superseded by git, but unfortunately I fail to find...

    FreeeBSD top repository structure?

    I am studying documentation in order to try to become a port maintainer (if I find a patient enough mentor...). I have been marveling at FreeBSD repositories, base, ports, docs. I noticed there is a repository root encompassing all of them. Is that really a huge subversion monorepo, or is...

    Running a Subversion server

    Hey all, I want to get started with Subversion (perhaps I should go for Git as there is quite an abundance of documentation on that) and part of that is setting up my own svn server—as, as far as I'm aware, there is no github for Subversion. Now I'm trying to figure out how to start...

    Determine Changes in KK.M-RELEASE-pN?

    I'm trying to determine how to see if a given MFC-ed change is present in a freebsd-update patch version, prior to installing it. This could be, for example, how to checkout the "tagged" source associated with the patch (to diff and/or examine the logs), or how to examine the patch contents...

    Port management via SVN only

    I'm trying to get down to a bit of development for FreeBSD as I have done for Fedora and Arch Linux previously and I'm curious about SVN/Subversion for managing the Ports Collection. So far, I only worked with GIT, though this helped me enough to do svn checkout of the Ports Tree to /usr/ports...

    Handbook: ports with Subversion

    Using the base Subversion server

    As of FreeBSD 10.0, a "light" version of Subversion has been integrated into the base system. It includes most of the svn tools, though the filenames have been changed (e.g. "svnlite" instead of "svn", "svnliteserve" instead of "svnserve" etc.) Most people probably would use this for the...

    I went looking for subversion clients for the desktop. I already use the subclipse plugin in java/eclipse but there are times when a "stand-alone" client is more convenient. The two most interesting candidates I found are: kdesvn (devel/kdesvn-kde4) and RabbitVCS kdesvn...
