B.4.  Testing SVN commit access to Debian Installer repository

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/sandbox
.../... (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.
