We accepted 12 GSoC students this summer. Last year Barry set them all up with SVNSVN Apache Subversion (often abbreviated SVN, after its command name svn) is a software versioning and revision control system. Software developers use Subversion to maintain current and historical versions of files such as source code, web pages, and documentation. Its goal is to be a mostly compatible successor to the widely used Concurrent Versions System (CVS). WordPress core and the wordpress.org released code are all centrally managed through SVN. https://subversion.apache.org/. and TracTrac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.https://core.trac.wordpress.org/. for their projects. Matt would like to do the same this year (rather than use google code or githubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/), but since we have this new .org systems blog, thought I should post it over here instead. Would imagine it would be same setup as last year, so:

  • https://gsoc.svn.wordpress.org/2011/ where wp.org usernames are the magic keys to commit to student-specific directories.
  • http://gsoc.trac.wordpress.org with each project getting a component, and the appropriate student being set as the owner.

Will leave comment here with the abbreviated project names and the associated student wp.org usernames once we’ve collected them all.
