View Full Version : Who is the Best Replacer of SVN

May 3rd, 2009, 07:54 AM
With my complaints grows against SVN(for detail, refer to http://ubuntuforums.org/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=7201420), I would like a better one to replace it.
So, I open this thread, wanting to find a best choise.
At least, it must be DVCS. As far as I know, there are git, Mercurial,Bazaar, and monotone.
My second concern is the compatibility. For example, the git-svn could co-work with the old svn system.
So, by default, I will go to try git first. While, still, I would like to hear your voice, about other ones, especially about their compatibility. For example, if they could co-work with CVS, SVN, or SD, etc.

git ?
I am deleting some unnecessary files to gather disk space to build virtual machines to try all of the candidates...
See my later report.

I too think it may be git http://sunoano.name/ws/public_xhtml/scm.html (that link has a http://sunoano.name/ws/public_xhtml/scm.html#why_git part which I think is pretty good)

For me a SCM has to be decentralized ... aside git there are other SCM systems but it looks like git is quite good for many use cases.

I'll no doubt be flamed but I've used CVS in large projects for years and never had a problem with it.

Mercurial is pretty good too. Check out this page for help using mercurial with subversion: http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/WorkingWithSubversion
