Development SVN

The SVN repository used for the development can be found at (browsable):

To browse the SVN source the Browse Source button in the toolbar offers a much better interface.

Repository Structure

FCKeditor -----------+ Every subproject will have a directory in the root.
    trunk -----------+ This is the development place.
        developers --+
        features     | Isolated development spaces.
        versions ----+
        2.3.2 -------+
        2.3.1        | A tag will be available for each version release. 
        2.3          | It contains the development version (trunk) at release time.
        1.6.1 -------+

All subprojects in the repository will present a structure similar to the above.

The "trunk"

The trunk is the effective place were will be working everyday. Usually we'll have local working copies of the trunk only (and possibly any branch).

Starting from version 2.4, the trunk will always have stable code which we can publish to the public SVN, and eventually release officially. So, only important bugs and small changes will be committed here, while more delicate and extensive developments will be done in a "branch".


Branch give us isolated environments for development, and once tested and confirmed a new work is ready, it can be simply merged in the trunk.

The branches could be created in the following spaces:

  • branches/developers: each developer may have a private branch under this directory. The directory name is the developer name (fredck, for example). The developer himself can decide to use it or not, and have complete freedom for it.
  • branches/features: if a feature is too big and complex, a developer could decide to create a dedicated branch for it.
  • branches/versions: there could be branches for future versions, waiting while previous ones are being tested and released.



TortoiseSVN: the SVN integration with the Windows Shell. This is the best way to work with SVN in Windows:

Subversion: the official SVN command line. Windows binaries can be found in the download page:

Book - Version Control with Subversion: a good (and free) book about SVN. We have bought a copy of it to support these guys:
