SourceForge Repositories

Review Board supports posting and reviewing code on SourceForge repositories.

The following types of SourceForge repositories are supported:

  • Bazaar
  • CVS
  • Mercurial
  • Subversion

To simplify posting changes to Review Board, we recommend using RBTools. This ensures that the diffs are in the correct format, and makes managing review requests much easier.

Adding the Repository

To configure a SourceForge repository, first proceed to add the repository and select SourceForge from the Hosting type field.

Step 2: Provide Repository Information

Next, you’ll need to fill out the following fields:

Repository type:
The type of repository you’re adding. This can be “Bazaar”, “CVS”, “Mercurial”, or “Subversion”.
Project name:

The identifier for your SourceForge project.

This is the name shown in the URL for your project page. It would be the project_name in https://sourceforge.net/projects/project_name/.

Step 3: Choose a Bug Tracker

If you’re using the issue tracking feature on this repository, you can simply check the Use hosting service’s bug tracker checkbox. All bug IDs will link to the appropriate issues for your repository.

If you’re using a separate bug tracker, or a separate project on SourceForge, you can leave the checkbox unchecked and choose a bug tracker from the list.

Learn more about bug tracker configuration.

Step 4: Manage Access Control

You can now choose who should have access to this repository (both posting against it and viewing review requests posted against it). This is separate from SourceForge’s own access controls.

Learn more about access control.

Step 5: Save the Repository

At this point, you should be able to save the repository. If saving succeeds, you’re done! You can start posting changes for review.
