About SVN

Install an SVN client

You'll need an SVN client on your computer. For most Windows user I recommend TortoiseCVS.

If you want to know more about accessing a CVS repository, see the general SourceForge documentation: http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=87016

Configuring your SVN client on Windows

Because your Python will probably create *.pyc files in your local work copy, you should tell SVN to ignore them. Here is how to do it:

cd %APPDATA%\Subversion
edit config

[miscellany]
### Set global-ignores to a set of whitespace-delimited globs
### which Subversion will ignore in its 'status' output, and
### while importing or adding files and directories.
global-ignores = *.o *.lo *.la #*# .*.rej *.rej .*~ *~ .#* .DS_Store *.pyc *.pyo *.dpyc

(*.dpyc files are compiled *.dpy files and will be created if you use lino.django.utils.dpyserializer.)
