Ports tree has been migrated to Subversion

July 16, 2012 by · 3 Comments 

The migration to Subversion is done and the SVN->CVS exporter is running.

Before committing please read the Ports Subversion Primer, http://wiki.freebsd.org/PortsSubversionPrimer. Please feel to add missing parts of fix it if something is wrong.

For those who like to mirror the repository, the svn mirror seed will be available in /pub/FreeBSD/development/subversion/ on a mirror near you. First places it will likely be are http://freebsd.isc.org/pub/FreeBSD/development/subversion/ and http://ftp.dk.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/development/subversion/. Be aware that the uncompressed repository is about 14GB.

Many thanks to simon@ for all the work he did this weekend to make the switch happen!

    I wonder how big the repo would be if it was in Git?

    I appreciate that FreeBSD tries to stick with non-GPL, open source licensed software, but can’t help feeling a bit strange that they are moving to SVN, a source code versioning that seems so arcane when compared with Git.
