How to configure Tortoise to work with INRIA Gforge?

 

Before you start

Be sure, you already loaded your ssh key with pageant. You can see here for more details.

TortoiseCVS

TortoiseCVS lets you work with files under CVS version control directly from Windows Explorer.

You can download an installer directly from here, or, if it does not work, from the TortoiseCVS web site. Once TortoiseCVS installed, you have to restart your computer.

 

TortoiseCVS is directly available by right clicking on files and folders within Windows Explorer.

To configure our CVS repository, we click on the CVS checkout menu item.

Here, you don't have to fill in the CVSROOT textfield. You just need to set following parameters :

  • protocol: Secure Shell (:ext:)
  • server: scm.gforge.inria.fr
  • repository directory: /cvsroot/<your_project_name> (your project unix name)
  • user name: your INRIA gforge login
  • module: The name of the module you want to checkout. The module name is case sensitive. (You can choose . to chekout the full repository).

On your first connection to scm.gforge.inria.fr, you will see the following message :

This message is displayed because the server key (gforge key) is not known. Click Yes to add the key of this site to the list of known pairs of keys/hosts.

The checkout is done.

 

TortoiseSVN

TortoiseSVN is a Subversion client, implemented as a windows shell extension.

You can download it from the TortoiseSVN web site. The binary installer is also available from here. Once TortoiseSVN is installed, you have to restart your computer.

 

TortoiseSVN is directly available by right clicking on files and folders within Windows Explorer.

To configure our SVN repository, we click on the SVN checkout menuitem.

Here, you have to fill in the URL of your SVN repository. The standard URL to acces your project on INRIA Gforge is svn+ssh://<your_login>@scm.gforge.inria.fr/svn/<your_project>.

You just have to replace <your_login> by your Gforge login and <your_project> by the unix name of your project.

On your first connection to scm.gforge.inria.fr, you will see the following message :

This message is displayed because the server key (gforge key) is not known. Click Yes to add the key of this site to the list of pairs of known keys/hosts.

The checkout is done.

 

In case of problems, mail the administrators or file a bug.
