IzPack Git repositories

The "blessed" IzPack repository is available from

Pull requests on GitHub

A quick and efficient way to collaborate with an IzPack developer that has a repository on GitHub is to:

  1. fork his/her repository, and
  2. send pull requests to propose your changes.

Pull requests on GitHub are really useful as they make code reviews painless!

Funny tip if you are a Subversion fanatic: GitHub repositories can be accessed read-only from Subversion.

Historical considerations

A complete Git conversion of the old Subversion repository can be found at (keep in mind that because it is based on the full repository, there are no branches and tags informations, just a linear branch which maps the Subversion revisions).

IzPack first used CVS, in 2004 it switched to Subversion. It switched again, this time to Git, in 2010.
