Improved SVN Here to Stay, Old SVN Going Away

About a year and a half ago we announced Improved Subversion Client Support – an improvement to the original service that provided better write access, partial checkouts, and access to branches and tags using the Subversion trunk/branches/tags convention.

Now, it’s time to shut down the old SVN support.

The old service is currently running on svn.github.com, and will be turned off on July 31. If you have any SVN checkouts of GitHub repositories from svn.github.com, you should recreate them using the new github.com URL. Since svn.github.com only checked out the default (usually ‘master’) branch, you should change checkouts that use URLs like this:

https://svn.github.com/user/project.git/

To this:

https://github.com/user/project/trunk/
