The subversion repository for yt has been frozen, and no further updates will be made to it. We're migrating exclusively to mercurial, which is a different mechanism for source control. (There's a bit more info at this blog post: http://blog.enzotools.org/yt-has-moved-to-mercurial ) I'm pretty excited about this -- it should open up yt as a whole to become more user-friendly in adding contributions. I've added appropriate suggestions to the repository:
as well as a list of active branches in the repository:
The installation scripts have been updated, and I've also changed the landing page and wiki to point to the new installation script. If you would like to move to the hg repository, I recommend either swapping out your existing installation or simply re-installing from scratch. The installation instructions have info on how to get either the stable branch or the unstable branch.
NOTE: As per Jeff's email from a couple weeks ago, the unstable branch (named 'yt') has moved away from the old naming convention ('lagos', 'raven', 'fido', etc) and to more descriptive names. Here's his message, for reference: http://lists.spacepope.org/pipermail/yt-users-spacepope.org/2010-August/0008... .
For more information on Mercurial, and what all this means, here are some handy links:
Please feel free to dig around and submit patches! I'm pretty hopeful that this turnover will make development and contribution of patches much more straightforward and easy.
Let me know if you run into any problems. Best wishes,
