Subject: Moving sqlmap development from Subversion to Git
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.security.sqlmap

Hi,

Following the steps of other open source security tools like
Metasploit Framework[1] and BeEF[2] and the persistent requests by
some users, we have recently decided to move from our own managed
Subversion (SVN) repository[3] to Git[4] and the obvious choice is
GitHub[5].

All development on sqlmap is now managed though Git and the official
repository is available to anyone at
https://github.com/sqlmapproject/sqlmap.
The Subversion repository[3]
has been ported to GitHub flawlessly hence we retain the commits
history.

The main advantage of Git over SVN, in part also due to the success of
GitHub users' friendly interface and social feel, is that anyone can
fork[6] the official repository, modify the code, and send a pull
request[7]: hopefully, in time, this will encourage you to contribute
towards the development of sqlmap.

In order to keep your copy of sqlmap always updated, we recommend you
to clone locally the Git repository as follows:
$ git clone https://github.com/sqlmapproject/sqlmap.git
sqlmap-dev

Soon, we will adapt the sqlmap's switch --update to pull changes from
the Git repository so you will be able to update to the latest
development version any time by running either of the following two
commands (in the meantime use the latter only):
$ cd sqlmap-dev ; python sqlmap.py --update
$ cd sqlmap-dev ; git pull

The Subversion repository[3] will be dismissed on June 30. If you have
an account on GitHub you can start watching the development clicking
on https://github.com/sqlmapproject/sqlmap/toggle_watch
too.

As a bonus, we have also decided to open publicly our issues list -
you can find it on https://github.com/sqlmapproject/sqlmap/issues:
do
not hesitate to report bugs and request features from the web
interface as well.

Please, help to spread the news!
