Subversion for Coders
To check out a project initially, this is the command you probably want to use:
svn co svn+ssh://svn.freegeek.org/var/lib/svn/PROJECT_NAME/trunk PROJECT_NAME
To create a new project in subversion, login to the subversion server (svn.freegeek.org) and do:
cd /var/lib/svn svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs PROJECT_NAME
This creates a project without any branch, tag or trunk directories, which is the recommended way to deal with branching and tagging in subversion. It is therefore recommended you then check out the project a different way and do:
svn co svn+ssh://svn.freegeek.org/var/lib/svn/PROJECT_NAME cd PROJECT_NAME svn mkdir trunk branches tags svn commit -m 'set up control directories'
Back to Coders.
