Subversion accepted as a Apache Top-Level Project
According to a post on the Subversion Community website, Subversion, the popular open source version control and configuration management tool has been accepted as an Apache Top-Level Project (TLP). The news marks the end of Subversion's time in the Apache Software Foundation's (ASF) Incubator which is the first step to becoming an ASF Top-Level Project. It also means that it will now be governed under the Foundation's meritocratic process and principles.
Subversion founder and sponsor Collabnet initially submitted the project to the Foundation in November of last year at ApacheCon US. Subversion is already used by a number of developers alongside other Apache projects, such as Ant and Maven, and uses other Apache projects including the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) and the HTTP Web Server.
An official statement, however, has yet to be released from the Apache Software Foundation or Collabnet. Subversion is licensed under version 2.0 of the Apache License.
