Q: Any reason for using 'svn co' instead of 'svn export'? export is way faster for these situations and it doesn't create all the .svn files.

A: Look at http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=245213


What's the reason for using 'cp -r $_svnmod $_svnmod-build' instead of using 'svn export $_svnmod $_svnmod-build'?--BertiBoeller 19:21, 15 March 2009 (EDT)

-- no reason afaik. Please send a patch against /usr/share/pacman/PKGBUILD-svn.proto from abs package to the bug tracker. --shining 07:59, 4 October 2009 (EDT)


Please submit the Mercurial proto to flyspray so that it can be added to abs package. --shining 17:37, 18 December 2009 (EST)

--- Q: Could we consider a guideline to use firewall-friendly protocols when possible (e.g. https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib.git instead of git://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib.git)?
