Access SVN is granted to component area leads and higher volume contributors. If you need access to SVN you may request it on the mailing list or through a component lead that you have worked with previously.
A few rules should be kept in mind when using SVN:
- All commits should contain commit comments.
- If a commit is resolving an issue from the issue tracker, the issue ID should be indicated (i.e. "This resolves ZF-2"). This will cause it to be auto-linked from Fisheye to the issue, and also the reverse link from the issue back to Fisheye.
- All commits that would affect release notes should have an associated issue in the tracker. There are issue types for most situations, and if it is just a significant change that does not fit into another category, use the issue type "Patch."
