Subversion Picked Up by the Apache Software Foundation

The popular version control software Subversion (or SVN) is moving to the Apache Software Foundation.

While Subversion is undergoing incubation at the ASF, CollabNet will continue to host the project at In addition, third party-certified binaries of the software configuration management system will continue to be available from CollabNet, as well as from other vendors, both during and after the incubation period.

This was brought to my attention by @ArtemR on Twitter. It’s interesting, and certainly important to the project. I think that it can only make things more efficient though. I highly doubt that the ASF is going to cause the sky to fall, or whatever it is everyone’s afraid of.
