From SPACE Wiki
SPACE is maintained in Git, a popular distributed version control system. Due to the nature of being a result of a research project, the development follows certain patterns along well-defined branch and merge paths.
The figure on the right side explains the version control workflow. Notable merge paths are the integration of components developed by students in Subversion repositories, a completely separate merge area for integrating with confidential project results, and a public access layer which ensures a true decentral control over the further development.
Use the following commands to clone our master repository for public read-only access:
% git clone git://serviceplatform.org/git/space
Developers use a different URL for push access through gitolite:
% git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:space.git
Git protocol access and browsing is realised with Gitweb for SPACE and associated repositories.
A mirror of the repository also exists at Gitorious!
