Paul likes the idea of a public SVN. But he doesn't have the time to administer it. Last I heard from him he was going to set me up with root so I could do it, this was a couple days ago. But he also told me he had pressing issues to attend to outside of LinuxMCE right now.

I would like to get as much revision history as possible into this tree so starting from 0704 would not be ideal. I also contacted Pluto about getting the trees synced up. If possible, I may actually start with a clone of their tree and just add any LinuxMCE changes on top. I just talked to their LinuxMCE liaison, Razvan, today and he tells me that his tree is pretty much in sync, but the differences between LinuxMCE and Pluto's product are significant these days. Unfortunately, the e-mail exchange was cut short due to the time difference; he's somewhere in Europe and I'm in NYC.

Hari, did you make the URLs public? Maybe we can at least use the trac there until I get svn set up with a revision history. We don't want contributions to fall through the cracks.

darcs is not ready for prime time.

As for git, there is no trac equivalent that I'm aware of, and it would also be harder to sync with other code bases which use svn such as MythTV, Pluto, Asterisk, etc.

I've been lurking here for a while and have decided to get involved. I just started running LinuxMCE at home recently; I want to set up an Asterisk system for my phones instead of relying on packet8, and want this server to run MythTV as well. The MythTV integration in LinuxMCE could use some work, so that's my coding interest in LinuxMCE. But I've talked with Paul about setting up a public SVN repository and otherwise making it easier for developers to get involved.

The public SVN doesn't need to be sold as an idea, some of you have already set up a repository, but I would also like to make the build scripts simpler so that you can just do a "./configure; make ; make install" on the modules, and maybe a "make cdrom" to make an install disk. I also think a mailing list rather than a forum would make sense for developers. And finally, I would like to move to trac for bug tracking, mostly because it can be integrated with svn and show exactly which issues have been fixed and in which version they were fixed. This wouldn't impact the 6 month LinuxMCE release cycle, but it would make it easier for developers like myself to get involved.
