To get a checkout of the Docutils source tree (with the sandboxes), type
svn checkout http://svn.code.sf.net/p/docutils/code/trunk docutils-code
If you are going to commit changes to the repository, please read the whole document, especially the section “Information for Developers”!
As of 2013-03-13 the subversion urls have changed.
The Git clone at http://repo.or.cz/w/docutils.git is currently not updated and should not be used.
While Unix and Mac OS X users will probably prefer the standard Subversion command line interface, Windows user may want to try TortoiseSVN, a convenient explorer extension. The instructions apply analogously.
For the project policy on repository use (check-in requirements, branching, etc.), please see the Docutils Project Policies.
The repository can be browsed and examined via the web at http://sourceforge.net/p/docutils/code
To get a checkout of the Docutils repository, first determine the root of the repository depending on your preferred protocol:
- anonymous access: (read only)
- developer access: (read and write)
To check out only the current main source tree of Docutils, type
svn checkout ROOT/trunk/docutils
(Substitute your preferred repository root for ROOT.) To check out everything (main tree, sandboxes, web site, and parallel projects), type
svn checkout ROOT/trunk docutils
This will create a working copy of the whole trunk in a new directory called docutils.
Note that you probably do not want to check out the ROOT itself (without “/trunk”), because then you’d end up fetching the whole Docutils tree for every branch and tag over and over again.
To update your working copy later on, cd into the working copy and type
If you would like to have write access to the repository, register with SourceForge.net and send your SourceForge.net user names to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Note that there may be a delay of several hours until you can commit changes to the repository.)
Sourceforge subversion access is documented here
Before commiting changes to the repository, please ensure that the following lines are contained (and uncommented) in your local ~/.subversion/config file, so that new files are added with the correct properties set:
[miscellany] # For your convenience: global-ignores = ... *.pyc ... # For correct properties: enable-auto-props = yes [auto-props] *.py = svn:eol-style=native;svn:keywords=Author Date Id Revision *.txt = svn:eol-style=native;svn:keywords=Author Date Id Revision *.html = svn:eol-style=native;svn:keywords=Author Date Id Revision *.xml = svn:eol-style=native;svn:keywords=Author Date Id Revision *.tex = svn:eol-style=native;svn:keywords=Author Date Id Revision *.css = svn:eol-style=native;svn:keywords=Author Date Id Revision *.patch = svn:eol-style=native *.sh = svn:eol-style=native;svn:executable;svn:keywords=Author Date Id Revision *.png = svn:mime-type=image/png *.jpg = svn:mime-type=image/jpeg *.gif = svn:mime-type=image/gif
The following tree shows the repository layout:
docutils/ |-- branches/ | |-- branch1/ | | |-- docutils/ | | |-- sandbox/ | | `-- web/ | `-- branch2/ | |-- docutils/ | |-- sandbox/ | `-- web/ |-- tags/ | |-- tag1/ | | |-- docutils/ | | |-- sandbox/ | | `-- web/ | `-- tag2/ | |-- docutils/ | |-- sandbox/ | `-- web/ `-- trunk/ |-- docutils/ |-- sandbox/ `-- web/
The main source tree lives at docutils/trunk/docutils/, next to the sandboxes (docutils/trunk/sandbox/) and the web site files (docutils/trunk/web/).
docutils/branches/ and docutils/tags/ contain (shallow) copies of either the whole trunk or only the main source tree (docutils/trunk/docutils).
