This is page contains some messages from the mailing list that discuss the use of Subversion to access the repository. This page should probably get a more formal layout, but for the time being it is usable.

Yesterday afternoon, I worked on setting up our new repository, testing it and making sure everything works as expected (WebSVN, RSS feeds, ...). When I was done, I was too tired/busy to post a notification to the list. But it seems this is no longer necessary as Koen already figured out how to check out the rep and even added new code, which is great.
For those of you who haven't already tried it, here is a short summary of commands that might be useful:
- To checkout the rep: svn checkout svn+ssh://bioinformatics.org/svnroot/BioCocoa - More information on other SVN commands are at: http://bioinformatics.org/docs/svn/ - If you are not familiar with SVN, the free O'Reilly book on SVN is excellent: http://svnbook.red-bean.com/
- Installing SVN on your Mac can best be done using the ready-made packages Martin Ott offers on his website: http://www.codingmonkeys.de/mbo/articles/page/3 - As Jim mentioned, SVNX is an excellent, open-source Cocoa front end to SVN. I'm using it since version 0.8 or something like that, and it's really awesome. For me, it worked much better than Xcode's SVN support too. You can get it at: http://www.lachoseinteractive.net/en/community/subversion/svnx/features/ - When using SVN with a front-end, (either SVNX or XCode), make sure to put your public key on the bioinformatics.org server (instructions are included in the DeveloperDocs).
- The BioCocoa SVN RSS feed can be found here.
I hope these instructions are helpful (especially to new developers).

Just did a checkout, and it worked!
Use this command:
svn checkout svn+ssh://bioinformatics.org/svnroot/BioCocoa
Later tonight, I will se how well it works with Xcode :)
