The Shibboleth project has migrating its source code repositories from the Subversion centralised version control system to the more modern and decentralised Git. This migration is described in detail here.
All development work is now being performed against the Git repositories; the versions previously available through Subversion are no longer available.
Accessing the Git Repositories
The Shibboleth project's public Git repositories are available using several different access mechanisms. You can read about these in detail under Git Repository Access.
Simple anonymous access to the repositories can be made using
git clone with a URL of the form
A web view is available for most public repositories by visiting https://git.shibboleth.net/view/
For information on how to build and extend the code please see the development guide associated with the product you're looking to work with.
