A number of you have probably noticed the old GIT mirror being up and down over the last few days, that’s because there’s been a fair bit of movement going on under the surface.
As per the announcement on mamedev.org the project is now officially being developed on Github, as opposed to our own inhouse operated SVN server. You can still pull the source exactly as before using your SVN client (tortoiseSVN or whatever you choose on Windows) but using the new address listed there instead of the one you’ve used in the past.
You can also update to a GIT based client for added functionality. The web based interface Github provides can be browsed like the GIT mirror, although there are currently some limitations imposed by GitHub (files per folder) that may cause some issues.
The old SVN server is now set to read only for everybody and will no longer be updated.
I don’t really have much to add to the announcement at this time, but feel it’s important to spread the message.
