[Mapbender-dev] GSoC: Development and SVN

Hi Mifan,

I suggest you create your own branch, using the current trunk as a 
starting point. You should login with your OSGeo account (the one also 
used in Trac).

You can then commit as much and often as you want, without having to 
worry about breaking things. However, you should keep your branch 
updated, and merge any new files from trunk into your development 
branch. I prefer "meld" for merging.

Here's what the Mapbender wiki has on this topic


Feel free to add anything you like.

You can always diff your branch with the trunk at the revision number 
you branched off in order to get the code you added to Mapbender. But I 
guess, you will create a lot of new files anyway, so Google will be 
content with these I guess.

Any questions? Just ask. Have a nice weekend
