[Pkg-electronics-devel] Enabling an Alioth SCM repository for our project

Hey guys,

Gudjon pointed this out that we still have not ever enabled any SCM on the 
alioth project. I think it's about time we do, as it will make 
collaborating on some more complex packages a lot easier. (As with most of 
our team resources, it's use should probably be recommended, but stay 
I'll go ahead and do the legwork to get everything activated. Before I do, 
does anyone have a super strong SCM preference? I can live with Subversion, 
but I think we'd be actually be better served using Bazaar[1].

Also keep in mind that since we are packaging lots of "unrelated" 
electronics software, we don't necessarily have to standardize on a single 
SCM tool, e.g. we can set up two or more(!) kinds of repositories. But that 
can start to make things confusing.

Anyway, give me your thoughts and preferences in the next few days, and I'll 
go ahead and get something (or two) activated.

[1] Bazaar <http://bazaar-vcs.org/>, aka Bazaar-NG, aka Bzr. This has 
nothing to do with TLA, Arch, and Baz, which have terrible, horrible, 
user-interfaces. Bazaar has a user-interface similar to Subversion, but 
(unlike Subversion) supports both centralized and decentralized 
workflows--great for Debian packaging work.
