Ditching Subversion

Posted 13 Mar 2009

I’ve converted all my public subversion repositories to git. They’re now hosted on github.

There were several reasons for doing so:

  • After having used git for some time now, subversion really feels awkward to use, even though no branching and merging was required so far.
  • It should now be much easier for users to maintain their own extensions of the plugins.
  • I will need to reinstall my server in the near future. I was not looking forward to reinstall subversion and make proper backups of all the repositories. Having the code in git, I don’t need to make server backups of the repositories anymore.

When the server gets reinstalled, the subversion support will be dropped completely.
