SVN Access

To Access the DESpec SVN, you need:
  • a services account
  • to be a member of the subprojects of DESpec
  • a kerberos ticket
  • a svn client

Recommended SVN Clients

Services Account at Fermilab

How to get a services account:

Member of the Subprojects

If you would like to have write access, email Brian or Laurenz, so we can add you to the DESpec project. If you don't need write access, look at the section Anonymous SVN.


How to set up kerberos

$ mv /etc/krb5.conf /etc/krb5.conf.bak
$ cd /etc
$ wget
$ echo "host
   ForwardX11 = no
   GSSAPIAuthentication yes
   GSSAPIDelegateCredentials yes" >> ~/.ssh/config
$ kinit -f your-fnal-username
$ klist

The final klist should show your kerberos ticket and the svn can be checked out now using the svn checkout command below.

SVN Introduction

Adding a File

Adding a file does not commit the file, use commit to upload the file.

svn add your-file


One need not supply a URL for commit. SVN automatically contacts external server

svn commit -m "your message"  

SVN Checking your changes

This presents a summary of the changes.

svn status

Which outputs something like

$:~/src/despec/trunk/Wrapper$ svn st
C       glue.ini
?       glue.mine.ini

You see the filenames and the flags at the beginning of the line. The flags mean:

? item
The file, directory, or symbolic link item is not under version control.

A item
The file, directory, or symbolic link item has been scheduled for addition into the repository.

C item
The file item is in a state of conflict. That is, changes received from the server during an update overlap with local changes that you have in your working copy (and weren't resolved during the update). You must resolve this conflict before committing your changes to the repository.

D item
The file, directory, or symbolic link item has been scheduled for deletion from the repository.

M item
The contents of the file item have been modified.

Creating a sub-project repository


  • If you have a project "fred" and a "main" repository with no identifier
    you get put in
    • /cvs/projects/fred
  • if you have a project fred and a repository identifier of "joe" you get
    • /cvs/projects/fred-joe
  • So you can do give them all identifiers, or have one (main) one without;
    or you can give the Main one an identifier...
  • If there is no "Main" repository, the Repository tab doesn't show up,
