Or have I missed something obvious?

on is man power. This is the best place to ask. I'm sure someone out-there needs a partner on their project. Also I'm sure if you find a project you like, the author would be grateful for any help you can provide.

on this subject however nothing has been released. Benji seemed to make the biggest effort but he has disappeared. There seems to be some renewed interest in the subject just recently. See: D/25687 and the following discussion. Parhaps Walter could setup a d.repository newsgroup which could be use to help bring the people working on the repository together for a joint effort. It could also be used as the *temporary* repository site (parhaps some convention could be worked out).

I don't think so. Subversion is extremely similar to CVS in actual use, but generally does things in a much more straightforward manner. TortoiseSVN <http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org> is an awesome windows shell extension that's already quite usable with subversion. -- andy

YAAAAY! My favorite CVS client ported to SVN! I can have nothing against SVN any longer. ;) -eye

There are a couple of gui shells for Subversion (both on linux and win32). I agree that it takes some work to get comfortable with it. But it's a new start for new projects: better now than later. I guess it's a good opportunity to learn something new too. Subversion appears to solve some annoying issues of CVS also. By the way, win32 version is quite slick. It integrates into the win32 shell and allows you to update from/to server on the fly with a right mouse click on the source directory. I don't like the accompanying GUI program, though. It doesn't make learning to work a subversion client very obvious. Prepare to study up for the new source control system. later, John

Yes, but Subversion *does* have its advantages over CVS. Check out subversion.tigris.org for details. It's handy :-) (...or maybe I ought to go mainstream and say it's 'cool!!!|!1 ~ ~ ~' ;-) Cheers, Sigbjørn Lund Olsen

People are generally doing their own thing at the moment. Since
Phobos-oriented projects are, by design, quite orthogonal, this was worked
well so far. Other projects, such as the various GUI projects, that are
broader and also not intended for Phobos, are already being carried out by
teams.

If you have a desire to jump into some D work, just say so, as I've got lots
of ideas for useful D tools. :)
