Repository/Trove/Forge Software


I'm looking around for open-souce (ie, free) software solutions for my server. The server needs to host a repository of software which is released.

I've looked at Sourceforge's Alexandria, and also the GForge software (branched from Alexandria). I've heard about Savannah, but their website does not load at the time.

Are there any others out there?

The reason I am trying to avoid Alexandria and GForge is that they are too robust for my application. I'm looking for something small, but functional to host in-house projects on the local network.

Thanks,
John

*EDIT: CVS is a nice feature, but not required. As long as it keeps track of my packages for me.

Tried Subversion? It's the bee's knees.

I have an svn server/client on my system already. i have tried it. but it's not what i'm looking for - i have my cvs repositories already (one main thing about svn that i didn't like what that it kept revision numbers for the whole project and not individual files).

I'm looking for a piece of PHP/CGI-BIN software that I can install on my server. When I go to it, it will list all of the projects I'm working on, allow me to download any released versions, and also upload new versions if I am a member of the project.

If you hook svn into apache, it does all the things you have mentioned. See the apache section of the svn manual.

As an aside, I actually think the per-project versioning as opposed to the per-file versioning is a benefit. After all, a change to one file may affect the others in unpredictable ways. If you index trees instead, at least you can always be sure that you can go back to a working tree.

I think that I have decided upon Trac for now. I finally got Savannah's site to run, and downloaded savane, but it didn't "look good", and referred to projects and files in funny ways. It did work good, but just wasn't appealing to me. Trac seems to be fairly nice, though I have to set up Trac installations for each project I'm working on - but I think I'll sacrifice it for the look and feel, as well as the ease of use. Alexandria and GForge were both nice, but were just WAY too complicated for me!
