The Subversion repository is just a read-only view of the Darcs one that people can use to check out new versions as needed.
Obtaining a read-only view from Darcs is trivial, *on platforms that have Darcs*. The latter is acknowledged to be an issue.
I'm not sure if I'm making myself clear on what I think "the problem" is. The problem, as I see it, is not enough people have access to core Chicken development. If they're forced into being minimally familiar with Darcs, i.e.
darcs get http://galinha.ucpel.tche.br/chicken
then that's one less perceived barrier to submitting patches.
I am open to ditching Darcs, if there's something as technically advanced, and mature, that has a greater platform reach, that we can all agree on.There isn't. Subversion isn't and wasn't meant to be: it is designed for a centralized repository only. Darcs allows fully distributed repository variants.
I'm not interested in moving to Subversion. We were discussing Mercurial about 6 weeks ago.
http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/index.cgi/FAQ Since that discussion, Arto started working on a Trac bugtracker. http://trac.edgewall.org/ So now whatever Trac supports is an issue. Fortunately, it appears to support both Mercurial and Darcs, although I don't know how well. http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/PluginList
