Initial overview of alternate VCS workflows

DVCS Workflows

Twisted is developed in a Subversion repository, but there is no reason you can't take advantage of your favorite DVCS toolchain to contribute and submit patches.

Keep in mind that unless you are a core committer, your interaction with svn basically boils down to:

# Checkout trunk
svn co svn:// twisted-trunk

# Create patches
svn diff > mypatch.patch

# Keeping up-to-date with trunk:
svn up

How you choose to manage your local repository is up to you, but here are a few workflows to help:


The Twisted codebase is mirrored into a set of Bazaar branches, making it easy to work on trunk or any existing branches.

See: Bazaar Workflow?


Work is underway to maintain an official Git mirror, but it is always possible to create your own local mirror using git-svn.

See: Git Workflow


There are no official Mercurial mirrors. One recommended method is to use the Mercurial MQ extension.
