Integrating libpesto with subversion
Subversion, an open-source centralized version control system, developed by CoallabNet, is currently the second most popular version control system, after the ever popular CVS. Like CVS, Subversion uses a client-server architecture, but has a cleaner, modular architecture. One set of subversion modules, are the filesystem backends modules of subversion. Two ``official'' backends are currently supplied with subversion, a berkleyDB based backend(bdb), and a custom filebased filesystem implementation (fsfs). At least another un-official backend module using an SQL-database exists. Pesto is a secure, decentralized, distributed peer-to-peer storage system, implemented both as a NetBSD filesystem, and as middelware, a portable C-library (libpesto). Currently two applications using libpesto have been written, a C\#\/.Net windows client, and a highly scalable serverfarm for Pesto, written in Java. In this project we integrate subversion with pesto, by creating a new filesystem backend for subversion using libpesto. The result is a version-control system, that works like a centralized version-control system, but has decentralized storage. We show that this system can be used for backup, mirroring of repositories, and as a decentralized version-control system.
