View Full Version : Free svn

08-12-2008, 07:31 AM
I started a simple openGL project with a group of other game developers who are new to 3d programming. I have a hosting account but it has a limited bandwidth/space.

I was wondering if there were any sites out there which offered a free svn system for people to use?

Thank you for your time and effort,

If your project is an open source project, there are a number of project hosting services out there, e.g., SourceForge (http://sourceforge.net), Google Code (http://code.google.com) and Launchpad (https://launchpad.net) (which uses Bazaar instead of Subversion).

GNU Savannah (http://savannah.gnu.org/) offers SVN, CVS, Mercurial and Git, but it has somewhat stricter requirements than other hosting services. There's also NonGNU Savannah (http://savannah.nongnu.org/), but I think that's just an alternative URL for the same service.

That's a client. The OP asked for a free SVN host.

If you are reasonably proficient with network administration, and your ISP allows it, there's always the option of running a server yourself.

SourceForge and google code are quite popular with subversion crowds. Personally, I *much* prefer distributed version control (a la Git/Mercurial) but if SVN is what you're into I would say SF or googlecode to be adequate (they also come with other services such as bug trackers and wikis, etc..)

For a (free google-sponsored) complementary code-review service with SVN integration, there is also Rietveld: http://codereview.appspot.com/
