Sourceforge now also offers Subversion hosting of the projects. And
we're proud that TortoiseSVN got selected as one of their "supported
Subversion clients".

The official announcement which came with the Sourceforge update newsletter:

Subversion General Availability

The SourceForge.net team is pleased to announce the General Availability
of Subversion service to SourceForge.net-hosted projects, effective
2006-02-21. This service offering is in addition to our existing CVS
service; as with all of our services, projects may select (and enable in
the project admin pages) the portion of our offering that best meets
their needs.

We wish to extend our thanks to the many projects and developers who
have helped us to test our Subversion service as part of our six-week
beta, which completed last week. Our particular thanks go to these
projects, whose members provided substantial feedback regarding the
new service:

* Inkscape - http://sourceforge.net/projects/inkscape/
* DejaVu Fonts - http://sourceforge.net/projects/dejavu/
* ScummVM - http://sourceforge.net/projects/scummvm/
* evilnet - http://sourceforge.net/projects/evilnet/

Our Subversion service includes:

SSL-based Repository Access:
* Developer Subversion access via HTTPS, auth is requested when you
perform a write operation
* Anonymous Subversion access via HTTPS
* No sync delays between developer and anonymous Subversion access
* Per-developer access control over repository access (ACL support to be
added in the future) via the SourceForge.net permissions system

Web-based viewing:
* Web-based repository access via ViewVC (formerly known as ViewCVS)

On-demand self-service backups and mirroring capability:
* Read-only rsync access to the repository to permit backups and
remote mirroring

Ease of migration:
* Automated self-service migration of your SourceForge.net project CVS
repository, CVS tarball, or Subversion dump to our Subversion service

Well-considered add-ons to basic service:
* A selected set of hook scripts, including commit email support and
CIA bot support
* Statistics tracking of Subversion repository activity

Service may be enabled by project administrators in the "Subversion"
section of the Project Admin pages.

Complete service documentation is available at:

Documentation is provided for supported clients at:
http://sf.net/docs/F06/ for the command-line SVN client
http://sf.net/docs/F07/ for TortoiseSVN

Our support of Subversion has been based on substantial research and
testing in the past few months, which we have pursued specifically based
on requests from the community. SourceForge.net continues to consider
new technologies and evaluate community requests in further
strengthening our service offering.
