SourceForge to Offer Subversion Service

Sourceforge has announced that the work is under way to offer Subversion as a service on the site.

An excerpt from the strategic projects document follows:

Subversion Service: The research, analysis, and support gear-up needed to implement a Subversion service at SourceForge.net is now in progress. As with all SourceForge.net services, extensive analysis and testing must be performed to verify suitable levels of stability and scalability before a service can be rolled-out. We are expecting the initial phases of this effort to last several weeks, to be followed by the implementation of a testing environment which will be used for a live beta test by specific selected projects. Pending successful scalability testing, service details will be finalized and service will be offered to all projects. (Last updated: 2005-03-02 Pacific)

SVK 0.30 Install for Windows Available

An installer for SVK 0.30 for Windows is available here. This is not a standalone .EXE file, but an installer for the SVK tool.

Some caveats from looking at it briefly this morning:

  • Make sure you have Subversion installed. I thought I had installed it already on my Windows XP machine – but I was wrong.
  • I was unable to authenticate with my SSL WebDAV server through SVK. I had to execute an svn ls https://blah.blah.blah in order to authenticate properly. Once I did this, I was able to create a mirror and sync to it.

I’m not sure if this is the “official” version of the Windows install, but it is one that is available for those who want to start running 0.30.
