Subject: Re: [eclipse.org-committers] What is appropriate use of this listAt the E4 summit, I asked if we could do E4 on SVN so that a firm I represent would be able to participate (they don't allow SSH through the firewall under any circumstances). My suggestion went over like a lead balloon due to people's frustrations with SVN and/or the SVN tooling.
As a consequence, I'm glad we've been having this conversation here. I don't know where else to start it.
But to improve the signal/noise here, rather than respond to that here, I've responded more fully on my blog (http://coconut-palm-software.com/the_new_visual_editor), which for unknown reasons was purged during the recent cleanup of Planet Eclipse.
Back to this thread's topic:-->
I tend to agree with Doug in the general case. While the original query was off-topic, I'm not sad that we got to air concerns about the SVN tooling.
I also tend to agree with Ed that perhaps it's time for those still interested in the current discussion about [CVS|SVN\GIT|Mercurial] to open a Bug and let people opt into the discussion there if they care.
