RW access to subcommander project

Steve Magnani
Hi Martin,

First of all, thanks for all the work you've done on subcommander. It's one of the key tools I use in Fedora every day.

As of Fedora 18, subcommander was dropped from the Fedora package set due to build issues. I am trying to get it reinstated (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=958794) with fixes I came up with for various crashes and usability issues.

Going forward, I am willing to take over maintenance of the code, as there are some features I would like to add (tying a repository bookmark to a peg revision, for example). This would probably be on a limited basis, though - I think Tortoise is pretty much the client of choice for Windows, and I don't have access to MacOS. I also use meld instead of submerge.

Would you be willing to grant me RW access to the subcommander project? Bug fixes I can handle with patches through Fedora, but new feature development really should be done through official releases.

Thanks,
Steve Magnani

Yes, the main issue with the subcommander project is, that I didn't saw
any prgress in the development of the upcomimng 2.0 release. I have saw
a beta release for the version over serveral year without any sing to
get a final release.

So from my point of view subcommander is a dead project and i didn't take
any effort to maintain a package of a dead project.

Best Regards:

Jochen Schmitt

Thanks. :-) Surprising but interesting that there is still interest with all the
other clients out there. :-)

Moving from Qt3 to Qt4 and improving the design was too much I guess... it
killed the progress on the feature side. Which probably killed user interest and
mine as well .. :-(

Tortoise was one motivation to start subcommander. :) I usually don't use the
windows explorer so I heavily disliked the explorer approach, back in 2003!

Nowadays, IDE integration is good enough and for the rest it is ok to fallback
to tsvn ;-)

On the Mac I would move to Conerstone or Versions. Commercial, but I don't think
there is a way to reach the same level for a single person in the free time.

So I guess, adjusting to the current situation, it would be fine to drop the
cross platform support.

Yes. :-)

Is "magnanisj" your user account on tigris.org?

Every time I try another open-source Linux SVN client I'm disappointed. If there's a package that's head and shoulders above the rest I'd love to hear about it. Or does everyone just use subclipse?

The one thing that really peeves me about subversion is how difficult it is to see past a 'mv' operation. With subcommander's concept of bookmarks into repositories I'm hoping it will be straightforward to add the ability to tie a bookmark to a peg revision.

Just to clarify, I don't have any intentions of breaking or removing support for Windows and MacOS - just no interest/ability in maintaining them.

That's me.

Thanks!
Steve

No idea, at work I use IntelliJ. At home it is git, everything is on git these
days :)

Yes, it was just meant as an "if it is in the way" it would not be worth
maintaining it.

I have added magnanisj as a "Developer" to the project on tigris.org.

As Developer you should be able to (from the role descriptions)

- contributes directly to project -- source code and HTML
- gains write access to most project resources
- write access to HTML, announcements utility, documents and files utility,
version control, and tracking component
- subscribes and posts to project discussions

Let's see if it works.

If you have any questions regarding the source I can try to remember.. ;-)
