Chia-liang Kao, the developer and maintainer of the SVK Distributed Version Control System posted a message to the mailing list on May 28th of this year declaring the end of development for the SVK tool.
I know from statistics that the tutorials on this site have been at least helpful, but am curious as to whether I should take them down or not given the fate of the tool. I myself have moved to Git, which has really good integration with Subversion.
So I’m asking you. Do you want the tutorials to stay, or can I get rid of them?
I’m kind of feeling bad for not blogging lately. The site is not getting much of my attention over the last few months. I’m playing a lot with git, a version control tool and figuring out how it plays with SVN, the SCM we use at work. I’m most interested in the advantages over SVK for distributed development while still having a central repository. Expect some posts on that soon.
Aside from that it is camping season, so I’m trying to spend most of my weekends away from the computer.
Hopefully, the bookmark trail is giving some good data on what I am looking at lately. If you really want to know whats going on, follow me on Twitter. It’s where I spend most of my blogging time lately.
Check out this really interesting lecture by Linus Torvalds on Git, the source control system he started for the Linux kernel. Its an interesting talk, where he compares Git with other version control systems.

So many things can have to be changed when switching hosting providers that sometimes code branching is the best answer (DUH). Here’s my feeble attempt at trying to explain the process during one such move. This actually went on for months, with me merging privately and creating builds for testing.
This was the final branching plan, once I knew everything would merge properly and I was asked to get everyone comfortable.
This is from sometime around 2002.

PEP-347 on Python.org outlines a migration of the Python source base from CVS to Subversion. According to an email on the Subversion user list, the migration has been completed and the public repository is online.
