Getting the sources

In addition to browsing the sources here, you can check out the sources with your favorite subversion client.

Keep in mind that, unlike cvs, tags and branches are ordinary directories in subversion. With the typical subversion respository layout, it is rather easy to checkout more than you probably intend to. To pull just the trunk version, use something like

mkdir fm2_workspace
cd fm2_workspace
svn checkout trunk

To update your workspace with the current repository content, use

cd fm2_workspace\trunk
svn update

If you would like commit access to the repository, please request it via the mailing lists.

Welcome to Trac 0.11

Trac is a minimalistic approach to web-based management of software projects. Its goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues, enhancements and overall progress.

All aspects of Trac have been designed with the single goal to help developers write great software while staying out of the way and imposing as little as possible on a team's established process and culture.

As all Wiki pages, this page is editable, this means that you can modify the contents of this page simply by using your web-browser. Simply click on the "Edit this page" link at the bottom of the page. WikiFormatting will give you a detailed description of available Wiki formatting commands.

"trac-admin yourenvdir initenv" created a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample data. This newly created environment also contains documentation to help you get started with your project.

You can use trac-admin to configure Trac to better fit your project, especially in regard to components, versions and milestones.

TracGuide is a good place to start.
