[] Eclipse Repository best practices (was: CVS, SVN, What is appropriate use of this list)

Hi all,
I fully agree that a bug filed against the "Architecture Council" component
is the right place for carrying on this discussion, so I just did it:
Thanks for bringing the issue up here, and thanks for all input so far.
Please continue discussions on the bug. I think it's on the Architecture
Council's charter to have such discussions about Best Practices, and
to articulate the Pros and Cons of various solutions.
As we are capturing arguments and (hopefully) gaining consensus,
the discussion sould eventually lead into creating a Wiki page about
the options, pros and cons that projects have with respect to their
As a reminder, if you are interested in Recommendations made by
the EAC, or if you want to bring up issue with the EAC, here is how:

At 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 (, 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.
