:?: Why not use SourceForge.Net's source services? They support SVN, GIT, Bazaar, and all of the other things.

Two other versioning systems are Mercurial and Bazaar. All of them state that they are the best, but it's hard to figure out which one truly is the best.

I feel strongly that we use git over svn, bitkeeper, or other version control systems, it dosnt have to be git hub but any provider of git, I suppose i will go with what is chosen but i simply dont see anything else with this level of reliability and flexibility. IMHO using any other VCS would be simply settling for less feature wise.

Awesome. Is there an easy way for users to switch from the SVN to the git without downloading everything again? Or should we just delete our SVN versions and start from scratch?

I thought (at least on the SVN updater I'm using) that I just need to click change URL and then click update. :mrgreen:

If not this is going to be very annoying for me because I just got SVN work for me. :shock:

Your SVN program probably won't be able to switch to a git repository, and most likely you'll need to find a new program entirely for git.

If you have SVN versions working, git versions should work in exactly the same way once it's downloaded. It's just a change in the way the source code is distributed.

He uses RapidSVN, no get support.

He doesn't mean build problems, he meant RapidSVN and TortoiseSVN were problematic.

Hi, ... [Luiji]

The program is actively developed. The reason you rarely see changes is because since <2010 the only developer was FluXy (who has very little time for SMC which gets $1 worth of donations a month average), and I am still trying to figure out the nitty gritty details of how SMC works. If you want to see SMC get more development, I recommend donating to the project. FluXy says he thinks about $250 a month total would be enough for him to dedicating a good amount of time.


P.S. For your information, i help the SMC project, with making the French translation.

well, we all help, with our own area of expertise i think the comment was more to the effect of the main code area, we only have one main code contributor and that would be fluxy

See, he understands me! :mrgreen:

I am trying to become another "main code contributer", but the game is such a huge program that it's taking me forever to learn it! Plus, I have no understanding of OpenGL...

I don't have much knowledge of git yet so don't ask me about clients and updating from SVN.
I used the command line to create and commit :P

Note that the git repository has some deprecated files removed and some case sensitive changes.
It's probably better to create a new repository from git.

i'm with fluxy on this, now is the time to make these adjustments, one that has bugged me for awhile is (unrelated) the word CHAIN in the editor is misspelled to read CAIN i dont know if it has been fixed in recent revisions. i wonder if git supports symbolic links, if so it would be nice to cross link graphics projects where credit is shared. symbolic links do not take much room and would be nice to see who collaborated on what in a graphical way without having to wade through credits or settings files.


EDIT: I may create a comprehensive and cross linked section on the wiki for graphics history and credit. if the community supports this, please private message me with your feedback about this issue, its something i'd love to do and is another time consuming project for me (YAY) so PM me and tell me if you think its a good idea, bad idea or whatever your thoughts might be (dont post here as that might be a bit off topic)

Hmm. Git doesn't seem to have a subfolder checkout option (like SVN had). Is there any way to not checkout Drafts? Can we split the repository somehow? Most users won't have or want Drafts... :shock:

Also, can we update this thread? viewtopic.php?f=6&t=300 I use it a lot when I want links to stuff. :star:

I am pretty sure GIT has that capability, it might just be harder to find...

It would probably be good to update that link.

Is the GIT repository done yet? Should I delete my non-modified files and then download through my GIT manager?

^No, no partial checkouts in git: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison ... l_software

submodules seem to be a workaround: http://book.git-scm.com/5_submodules.html

The git is ready to be checked out if you want to, but as I said, you'll have to download Drafts too (will take a while).

I think that is because Linus Torval expected people to put separate sections into separate repositories and post them on the same server.
