Re: [IMPORTANT] Move librep/rep-gtk/sawfish to

IMO, you get the best flexibility if you run your own server. (that is, have root on it; a VPS would work as well).  They're pretty cheap these days (I'm sure you can get one for less than 70$ a month).  This, of course, doesn't save you from doing regular backups, which is something I learned the hard way.

SVN sucks.  I don't have much experience with GIT, but it must be better (I've read some docs).  I'm using Mercurial for my own stuff — it has the best of both worlds: easy to use, yet fast, powerful and decentralised.  I'd say go for HG if you have a choice.

Hi all,

We discussed earlier about switching the sawfish-host and dvcs. Now I
decided to move. Why? Pretty easy, I lost my ssh-key _before_ I was able
to back it up, and now I'm already waiting 10 days for the new one to be
accepted. Since I'm already hosting something on, I
thought it would be a good Idea. But - of course - I first want to here
your opionions on that.

What offers:

PostgreSQL DBs
CVS Repo (... uhm no!)
SVN Repo (Not much changes to now)
GIT Repo (Is it better/easier than SVN?)
Maling Lists
Mail Domains
Download Repo
Domain Names

Another Idea would be sourceforge. But somehow it's webinterface
confuses me. (perhaps it's just me :) )

So, let me hear what you think! Tuxfamily or something else (Atleast
something, where I can administrate and therefore not relying on someone
else), SVN or GIT?

(I want to move pretty fast. pretty fast means around 2-4 days, because
that slow progress on annoys me)
