Inquiry: Hosting My Project on the SBV repository

Hi good people,

My name is Shlomi Fish, and I'm a Technion student and an OS developer on
my free time. Lately, I started a project by the name of Logic Mazes
Solver, which is an API that solves some types of the Logic Mazes present
on the Logic Mazes site. (http://www.logicmazes.com/) The API is quite
mature, but I expect the project to be under heavy development as I add
support for more types of puzzles as well as other miscellaneous features.

I used two localhost CVS servers, one at home and the other on my Technion
workstation to manage the source tree. However, I already became hampered
by some of CVS' mis-features, and sometimes had to resort to manually
tweaking the RCS tree. Moreoever, I would like everything to be present on
a central Internet-wide repository that I can use from home or from the

I know about BitKeeper, and from what I learned from its site, setting a
project on BitMover is actually quite straightforward. However, I'd also
like to inquire regarding hosting the site on an SBV-based host, so I can
learn about my options. Most of the free OSS hosting services I know of
use CVS (i.e: SourceForge, BerliOS, GNU Savannah, ibiblio, sourcefubar,
etc.) and like I said I would prefer something without its limitations.
Plus, for a remote environment, tweaking the RCS tree would not be a
viable option.

So, my question is whether the project can be hosted on your central
server, or on some other server that is powered by Subversion?

Some statistics about the codebase: (as of April 4, 2002)

Size of the codebase's snapshot: 125 KB.
Number of Physical Lines: 1615
SLOCCount Lines of Code: 1007
Size of the CVS Repository: 195 KB.

Of course, it is possible that the codebase (much more the source control
repository) will become much larger in the future. Such have been the case
for Freecell Solver, which is a similar project of mine which I worked on
without using a source control mechanism.

Thanks in advance,
