Superversion : About

Superversion is a version control system written in Java and published under GPL. It is an alternative to free solutions (CVS, Subversion…) running on Unix or commercial solutions (CMS…) running on OpenVMS. The stable version (Superversion 1.2) is a standalone and single-user application. The following version (Superversion 2.0) will be a client-server and multi-user application.

Thierry Uso has ported Superversion 1.2 on OpenVMS. Porting means testing all the functions, adapting the source code to correct some failures, writing a startup procedure and creating a PCSI kit. Superversion 2.0 will be ported as soon as there will be a stable version.

Superversion for OpenVMS needs Java 1.4.1-2 or later. It may be installed on ODS2 or ODS5 volume. The project directories must have a “default version limit” equal to 1 and the source files in these directories must be in the Stream-LF format. Superversion has been tested on Alpha and Itanium.
