Well, fist of all: thanks for your reply, I appreciate it.

I will answer/ask inside the text: (for still relevant issues)

to use CVS.

I will use CVS then, I don't care...

(At least with CVS)

OK, I checked the root here:
empty indeed. Now: how can I "fill it with files"?
(When I said "project", I meant the source code repository, indeed)

> How can I access the "administration" of those systems? (is there a web
administration at all?)
>> What do you mean by that?
>> When you are logged in you will see "Project Main Administration Page"
in the links below the project description. Or simply under "Main" in
the menu at the top.

What I meant by "web administration" is whether I have a web interface to
control CVS utilities: committing edits (like in SVN), merging, etc.

>> You cannot "run" anything on the savannah servers.
>> They offer webspace, but only for static content.

Well, this is the main thing that interesting me: I didn't know that I
cannot execute scripts on Savannah's server... (My planned software is based
on PHP); well: I have my own "shared space" where I can run a production
version for tests, etc, but because it is shared, I cannot install CVS/SVN
on it, hence I asked for Savannah to host the project.

Assume That I host a "running" version on my shared server and the CVS on
Savannah's server - will I need to manually update my own server each time
someone is committing an update? That seems unreasonable, and in open-source
PHP projects that I used to contribute to, it wasn't like that - I worked
with SVN, I fixed a bug, committed it ("updated") and could see the effect
immediately on the server (on

Is that impossible in Savannah?

Are all free open-source hosting services (like Savannah, unlike
SourceForge) working in the same way, or is it Savannah-specific limitation?
(on executing PHP code)
