After some more serious pain from gforge (when I say undocumented i mean
undocumented!) i have managed to upgrade from the default 3.1 version that
debian installes to 4.0. The main reason for this was to gain support for
subversion (actually this is incomplete in 4.0 so to get the subversion
support actually *working* required some more hacking around).
So we now have basic gforge + subversion. However there is still much to be
sorted out such as:
1. subversion is completely open (no access restrictions). To sort this out
will require patching mod_auth_pgsql (and maybe mod_dav_svn)
2. Need to create a kforge theme
3. sort out cron jobs (much basic housekeeping in gforge is done by cronjobs
but these are a complete mess with at least 2 incompatible versions in the
tarball and cvs). Probably will need to rewrite from ground up ...
4. various other minor items like sorting our viewcvs
At this point we will roughly be in a alpha phase and could probably migrate a
couple of minor projects there.
HOWEVER: Given experience with gforge so far I am quite tempted to just ditch
it, or at least substantial portions, and rewrite (this is going to be
necessary for some parts anyway).
