Howto access a remote SVN repository from PHP

Filed under: Development — mbady @ 05:56

For our new site we wished to have something that shows the users we are currently working on dangerdeep and the project is not dead. A good way is to get some informations from the Sourceforge SVN repository and display them on the page. But neither the subversion plugin for PHP is installed on the Sourceforge webspace or we can access our cia.vc feed, because every in/outgoing connections are blocked for scripts by the Sourceforge firewalls. Well, there is the RSS feed provided by Sf.net and it contains commit messages but the feed is far away from being well structured and doesn’t contains all informations we want.
