JavaForge: SVN hosting for your open source project

By Kevin Yank

The fine folks at JavaLobby have just announced a new community for open source Java projects: JavaForge.

With SourceForge.net and Java.net already hosting thriving open source Java development communities, JavaForge is set to distinguish itself with the modern Subversion code versioning system (SourceForge.net and Java.net still use the older CVS system) and a raft of other features offered by the CodeBeamer platform.

I really hope this site takes off, or at the very least nudges the established sites closer to deploying Subversion. It really does address so many of the annoying issues that plague developers forced to use CVS.
