We will *not* to the cvs to subversion transition today. Feel free to check in against the cvs head.
Thanks for trying this out.
It looks like we're not ready to convert yet. :(
We need to sort out the issues you raised. Clearly, the move to subversion is going to take longer than I'd hoped.
Let's try to sort these issues out today. If we can, maybe we'll try again tomorrow. If not, the transition may need to wait a few weeks.

You will be able to do read-only anonymous checkouts like so:
svn co svn://svn.zope.org/repos/main/<project>/trunk
svn co svn://svn.zope.org/repos/main/ZConfig/trunk
FYI, I tried that on Windows (XP), and it worked fine.
One glitch, which may be all over the place: some of the "text files" got checked out with Windows line ends, but most did not. For example, 14 of the 19 *.txt files in ZConfig ended up with Windows line ends, but none of the 37 *.py files did.
Ack, no, none of the checked-out .txt files did either. The .txt files that had Windows line ends were all created by svn for its own purposes (README.txt files in .svn directories).
I'm not sure what to do about this. Best I can tell from the docs so far, svn wants a
property added to every line-oriented file, with value
in order to get platform-sane line-end conversions. The doc's explanation of the effect of that matches my understanding of what CVS does for all non-binary files, which is usually exactly right.
I noticed that Fredrik Lundh complained about something similar here:
http://effbot.org/zone/subversion.htm ... Properties are nice, but having to use three different commands to check in a text file from Windows is pretty annoying.
Looks like svn *expected* us to do this by setting enable-auto-props during the intial imports, with a bunch of [auto-props] settings in a config file; like
""" [auto-props] *.c = svn:eol-style=native *.cpp = svn:eol-style=native *.h = svn:eol-style=native *.py = svn:eol-style=native *.dsp = svn:eol-style=CRLF *.dsw = svn:eol-style=CRLF *.sh = svn:eol-style=native;svn:executable *.txt = svn:eol-style=native *.png = svn:mime-type=image/png *.jpg = svn:mime-type=image/jpeg """
I think we'll have to develop a standard set of config file settings like that for committers to add to their personal svn configs -- or can that be done on the server side?
To do a writable checkout (if you are a contributor who has submitted a version 1.1 contributor's agreement), you will use svn+ssh:
svn co svn+ssh://svn.zope.org/repos/main/<project>/trunk
Is that supposed work already? All I've been able to get out of it is, e.g.,
C:\Code>svn co svn+ssh://svn.zope.org/repos/main/ZConfig/trunk szc2 svn: Connection closed unexpectedly
where the error msg appears very quickly (usually well under a second).
