Access a Subversion Repository - Overview
This article applies to: Subversion
Each TeamForge project can have one or more Subversion repositories associated with it. (How do I create a repository?)
Once a repository has been created, follow these steps to complete the initial setup:
Set your TeamForge login password
(Do this once, before using a Subversion client to manage your repositories.)
Determine the Subversion repository URL
(Do this once for each Subversion repository, in order to set up your Subversion client to work with that repository.)
Connect to the Subversion repository
(Do this once for each repository; local copies of your files will be created as a result.)
Once you have completed these steps, your repository will be available to you whenever you use your Subversion client.
Notes on Subversion Clients
The Subversion repositories provided by TeamForge are standard Subversion repositories. You can use any Subversion client to work with your repositories.
- If you prefer to work outside of an IDE with the Windows file manager, TortoiseSVN is a good choice.
- The Eclipse IDE version supports the Subclipse plugin and a Collab.net Desktop plugin that provides some value-added features (some features will not be available until the upcoming 5.x upgrade).
These web pages describe how to use TortoiseSVN and Eclipse (with the Subclipse plugin).
