Projects sometimes on github sometimes on svn

Projects sometimes on github sometimes on svn

I submitted projects but one of them is linked to the original github repository whereas the others have been hosted on

Is there a reason for this ? Cause it complicates the update process if needed.

Than you for your answer.

Hi Mikaël,

Its a historical question blunk.gif Emoticon I mean, before, used svn server. But with time and migration, ez goes on github. So it was logical to use now github repositories for community projects too. So i invite you, to create and use github link for your project happy.gif Emoticon

If you create a new project on and get assigned an svn repo by mistake, just log in again, edit the project description, and add to it the github url. Wait a few minutes, and you will see proper links to your source code

Thank you both for your answer. I updated the repository URL with the proper Github URL and it displays now the good view.

Can't quite see the reason to keep a record of extension on both github and 

With the poor search tools on Projects most people and up using Google anyway. Not to forget all the old abandoned or "placeholder" projects.. 

So if you want to publish an extension and are using GIT place it on Github (and but some usefull information in the readme file), they also got a build in wiki, issues and pages.

If you are still sticking with SVN I guess is the best alternative.

@Gerhard true, but eZ just got a new developer onboard, who might soon be tasked to improve the platform.

If it was up to me to decide, I would:

1. make the search page work

2. add proper comments / rating support (integrate w.

3. allow developers to properly tag releases, version compatibility

4. implement an automated build systems as freely available online service for all extensions (doing qa checks and building tarballs)

5. more visibility to download numbers

I think you miss his point Gaetano, why spend time on this, there are many really good code repositories out there by now, with advance social capabilities and features. Even with new dev on board, will never become anything close.

Only thing needed is either:

A. Simple profile link to your accounts on github[/bitbucket] + integration to show up repositories you have, activity, ... on profile page


B. meta list here on with url + category + version fields, and rest from github[/bitbucket] and then some integration to make them searchable.

@Andre I agree that there are many good social-coding repos out there, and that we can not keep up with all the nice features they have.

That's why we already moved away from hosting code there using svn to just integrating with github.

Otoh some features we already have in place (a good enough forum), and I think there are some that you will never get from generic code-repositories (two I mentioned above: proper tagging of releases, with dependency info available when searching for extensions compatible with eZ version XX; a build-service etc... some of these needs might be covered in part by usage of composer to install extensions, but I think not all of them).

And call me an old fart, but I still prefer searching a single site for existing extensions than going to google happy.gif Emoticon
