A sandbox directory has been setup for developers and translators to practice with SVN before doing real work.The sequence for testing commit access should be similar to what follows. Please note that, depending whether your SSH keys have been added to your account on anonscm.debian.org, you can be prompted for a password up to three times. This is because of the special authentication setup on anonscm.debian.org.
cd <somedir> svn co
svn+ssh://<alioth_username>@svn.debian.org/svn/d-i/people/sandboxPassword: Password: Password: .../... (checkout should happen here) cd sandbox echo "Testcommit" >foo svn add foo svn ci -m "Testcommit of a file" foo .../... svn remove foo svn ci -m "Remove the test file"
As stated by the
README.txt file in this
directory, please avoid commiting large files for testing as this
clutters up the SVN server history.
