Anyone got a recommendation for a subversion client for Windows. Preferably one that allows a local repository as well as network and web repositories.

I haven't used subversion before. Is there anything special you have to do to get U++ code from google.

If google is not the main repository for U++, how do check-ins get to the main repo? I assume there's no locked checkouts?

I use SmartSVN (www.syntevo.com/smartsvn/). It's the best client IMO (I tried many) and works on linux also.

I suggest getting just commandline

http://www.sliksvn.com/en/download

and then just use svn support in theide. It is highly automated... But you need to issue at least the first checkout from the commandline.

Another popular choice seems to be TortoiseSVN.

Hello Mirek

As TheIde supports svn but requires a command line client, it would be good to include somewhere in:

- U++ install, or
- TheIde

some option to say the user what to do to get svn support.

Perhaps when the user wants to use svn in TheIde, it may:

- check if a svn client exists
- if not, suggest the user to install one giving instructions depending on the OS.

Best regards
Koldo

For command line I use Colab svn:
http://svn.collab.net/

example of command line in cmd.exe is:
svn checkout "http://upp-mirror.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/" "D:\ILupascu\sourcecode\cpp\upp\svn_google"


but for visual operations I use Tortoise SVN:
http://tortoisesvn.net/

google is public mirror. All contrinutors gain access to main repo, which has fine-grained access rights.

I guess you will need the access, right? Smile
