KDE's Switch to Subversion Complete

Filed under
KDE

The conversion of KDE's source repository from CVS to Subversion is now complete. All KDE developers with CVS accounts now have Subversion accounts. To find out how to use your new Subversion account read the Using Subversion with KDE tutorial. To checkout anonymously use svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/ as the base of your Subversion repository URL. You can browse the repository through the web at http://websvn.kde.org/.

This is the largest ever change from CVS to Subversion. The conversion script ran for a total of 38 hours from start to completion. Congratulation to Stephan Kulow, Oswald Buddenhagen and the other system administrators for the successful change.

KDE's family of websites are now managed and updated from the Subversion archive. The CVS archive itself still exists in read-only mode. Every developer now needs to do a fresh checkout of their KDE sources. While the server is still operating under heavy load you may wish to start with these pre-checked-out archives of trunk/HEAD rather than checking out directly from Subversion.

Subversion offers many advantages over CVS while remaining similar enough to use that it should be easy for existing users to learn. Changes are now made with a single revision number per-commit rather than per-file. It also offers the ability to move files & directories and makes it easier to work with branches.

    New Kernel means new set of updated lives. I am happy to release the F24-20160823 updated lives isos.
  • Curse you, Jon Masters! Why do you always have to be right!
    Long story short, Fedora 24 came out and I'm given the taste of the same medicine: the video on the ASUS is completely busted. I was able to limp along for now by using the old kernel 4.4.6-301.fc23, but come on, this is clearly a massive regression. Think anyone is there to bisect and find the culprit? Of course not. I have to do it it myself. So, how did F24 ship? Well... I didn't test beta versions, so I don't have much ground to complain.

  • Autocloud: What's new?
    Autocloud was released during the Fedora 23 cycle as a part of the Two Week Atomic Process. Previously, it used to listen to fedmsg for successful Koji builds. Whenever, there is a new message the AutocloudConsumer queues these message for processing. The Autocloud job service then listens to the queue, downloads the images and runs the tests using Tunir. A more detailed post about it’s release can be read here. During the Fedora 24 cycle things changed. There was a change on how the Fedora composes are built. Thanks to adamw for writing a detailed blogpost on what, why and how things changed.
