    Free SVN server + problem changing name/pass after checkout

    Do you know of any good free SVN server? I stumbled across but wanted to hear if you know a good/better one.

    EDIT: Also, I'm using Tortoise as the client. When checking out a repository you supply a username/password. I (stupidly) checked the "remember username/password" button but now I want to change to another name/pass, where can I do this? I cannot find it. Checking out in another folder still remembers the name/pass.

    To clear your username/password, right click anywhere in a folder and go TortoiseSVN->Settings and there is a button marked "Clear Now".

    Thanks for that link.

    Doesn't the new Sourceforge offer SVN hosting now?

    The Sourceforge svn support is still under beta testing, but will be open for all sometime later this year (February, apparently).

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    What I like about that site is that it provides trac. Nothing, nothing, beats trac.

    I do not know if is better than, but i saw users migrating to assembla.

    you can take a look at their site, they have free svn/trac/maillist and more tools will come like sugar crm/alfresco. all these tools has centralized authentification mechanism that makes it easy to build a team and start a project.

    There's also The very same site where it is hosted. However I reckon they have restraints on the projects they host.

    And Berlios. A very mature Open Source project hosting website.

    Both work with the Subversion system
