Archives now offering public Subversion

Good news. It appears that SourceForge are now offering full, public use of Subversion for all projects on!

The Subversion (Version Control for Source Code) document contains full details on their setup. Notable key points:

  1. It’s using authenticated HTTPS — which is great, going by my experiences with the ASF’s setup
  2. Imports are done from either an existing CVS repository using cvs2svn, from a Subversion ‘svnadmin dump’ file, or from a CVS repository tarball
  3. CIAbot support is offered as standard ;)

Awesome. I’ll be trying this out with Uffizi, which I registered as a Sourceforge project a few weeks ago just to try this out. ;)
