Free SVN Repositories to Host your Projects

We are planning to start work on an open source project soon. As a result, we were looking out for a free SVN repository [what is SVN?] with the following main features:

  • reliable version control system
  • mailing lists, forums, issue tracker, pages, download area
  • web based administration

Here are some free SVN repositories we found and thought of sharing with you, in case you too are looking out for some. Note that some of the products listed here have both free and commercial options. I am highlighting only the Free plans.

Assembla - Unlimited Users. Unlimited Projects. 2 GB Storage. Ideal for consultants and small agile-development teams that want a safe, reliable version control solution.

Unfuddle – Free for 2 users, 200 MB of space. Unlimited Repositories Subversion & Git.

BeanStalk – Free for 3 users, 1 private repository (Git or SVN) and 100 MB of space.

Though I personally prefer git (thus GitHub). You should also consider Mecurial which can be hosted on Bit Bucket.

Would be nice to know which ones allow private projects, not only public ones.
