  • Convenient installer.
  • Easy configuration via Admininterface.
  • Runs on every machine that has the free .NET framework installed.
  • Use the issue tracker to track features and enhancement requests. It is not just for bugs, pre-populate it with feature descriptions so that potential contributors know what you would like them to work on.

Rules for development

  • Use C# language and all your best knowledge.
  • Add useful comments to your code.

Contribution currently needed on

  • Writing documentation.
  • Testing service on different machines and different environments.

Installation Notes

  • Due to Registry Virtualization SVNService Administration needs to be started in Admin Mode, otherwise the service will not be able to read its configuration.
    Just press Shift, right click on SVNService Administration select "Run as Administrator" now enter the correct paths and press "Save".
    After that you can either reboot or start SVNService manually.
