Projects / Freepository


Freepository is a Web-based revision control system based on massive extensions of CVSWeb. It employs a project concept, which provides member accounts and access controls. At project creation, unique CVS repositories are created, containing their respectively unique project credentials. The database maps users to repositories. It also supports multi-file upload, secure remote command line access, and on-the-fly tarring & downloading of repositories.

            Quick and easy
            The whole system went togeather fairly well, I grabbed the HOWTO on the freepository website. The HOWTO is a bit thin on putting it togeather, but I followed the HOWTO loosely and it all worked out fine except for perl CGI (

            You need to use perl's CGI package version 2.56 (I think) as freepository uses the CGI::use_named_parameters() which was removed in version 2.57 of the CGI lib.

            Software Package or Service?
            Is Freepository supposed to be a software package or a service?

            There's a file containing Perl, Java, and HTML source code available for download, but it looks to be a snapshot of a portion of their site tree and doesn't include any documentation (or even a README file), and some portions of the site clearly refer to Freepository as a service provided by Configman (Greensfelder Technology Corporation) rather than a software package.

            (Don't me wrong - I'm very enthused about someone finally putting together a fully-functional web front-end for CVS - but I'm also not sure handing complete control of our projects' source code repository to an unknown corporation is the best idea.)
