Document read access through SVN

In order to contribute to MondoRescue, you have multiple ways:

  • First, edit the Wiki and improve its content
  • Second send patches on the MondoRescue Mailing-List to get them discussed, approved and applied. You can have access to the repository in read mode using the following CLI:
    $ mkdir mondorescue
    $ cd mondorescue
    $ mkdir branches
    $ cd branches
    $ svn co svn://svn.mondorescue.org/mondorescue/branches .
    
  • Third, once you've proved your ability to provide good patches, ask to become official contributor by sending your public SSH key to the maintainer
  • Once accepted as maintainer, you can have access to the repository in write mode using the following CLI:
    $ mkdir mondorescue
    $ cd mondorescue
    $ mkdir branches
    $ cd branches
    $ svn co svn://mondorescue@svn.mondorescue.org/branches .
    $ cd ..
    $ mkdir devel
    $ cd devel
    $ svn co svn+ssh://mondorescue@mondo.hpintelco.net/devel .
    

Note that currently, the stable branche is 3.0 (which is then declined into 3.0.1, 3.0.2 - tags available as well) If you modify 3.0, please also apply your modification to the next branch, 3.1 at the moment.

A third tree (devel) is used for experimental stuff on mondorescue, including the perl rewrite, and shouldn't be used for the moment. A fourth tree (trunk) was an attempt to rewrite mondorescue to only use dynamic memory allocation. Most of that work is now in 3.1 and it should be considered dormant.
