I hope this doesn't come too surprising to everyone, but we've decided 
to finally leave CVS and SourceForge behind with respect to hosting our 
source repository.

Our new repository will be Subversion based and located at http:://
developer.berlios.de, our project side can be accessed via 
where you can already find a test repository to play with. As you can 
see by following the links, the service is very similar to SourceForge, 
it even comes with almost the same front-end.
Hopefully, the switch to BerliOS will also solve the performance 
problems we had and have with SF, although that wasn't the reason for 
this decision.

Subversion has a great deal of advantages over CVS which will help our 
development process considerably. See http://subversion.tigris.org/ for 
more information about Subversion.

The official switch date has been set to February 25th, 2005. We will 
make a more detailed roadmap available before.

Before the actual switch happens, we will also make Subversion packages 
for R5 and Zeta-based systems available (R5 requires an updated SSH as 
well), as well as publishing a small introduction on how to use 
Subversion on our repository.

Comments, criticism, etc. can be directed to our main mailing list 
you can reach here: http://www.freelists.org/list/openbeos.

Kind Regards,
   Axel Dörfler.
