script.aculo.us switches to git(hub) and Lighthouse

May 9th, 2008

script.aculo.us is from now on developed using Git (hosted at github) for source code management and revision control, and Lighthouse for bug tracking.

Why git instead of Subversion? Well, it simply rules supreme, and makes working with many distributed developers with lots of branches a snap. You can find a good intro book on Git on Peepcode.

script.aculo.us 1.xx development will focus on bug fixes only, while I’m working on the next version of scripty (post on that coming up soon!).

Repository for script.aculo.us 1.xx

Note that if you’re just using the library, this change won’t really affect you.

If you have open bugs on the old Trac please port them over to lighthouse yourself!

I’m also working on a replacement for the documentation wiki (which, quite honestly, sucks); so stay tuned for some updates in the near future. If you want to help out with the documentation effort, please contact me. :)
