Since the code is opensource maybe it would be useful to move to github.
On github it would be easier to support the development.

On the current solution I wouldn't know where I get an account to help.
Furthermore the link of the contributors is dead or wrong?:
http://development.burp.renderfarming.net/projects/burp/wiki/Contributors?parent=How_to_download_the_code

For checking out the code you can use the anonymous user. Patches are reviewed before being accepted. There are 3 subforums dedicated to development for the different parts of the service.

You are free to clone the source repository on Github (or the moon) as long as you make sure that people know it isn't the official one and that the relevant open source licenses apply.

Thanks for pointing out the missing Contributors page. Will have to dig it up from an old backup since it seems to have gone completely missing at some point - probably when we migrated to the current development site.

Thx for your quick reply.

My problem was that I didn't find a description on the "Help us code" page how someone commit code to a review.
And Git has a nice workflow for this^^

Ah right, that's a good point. I'll add a section about that

I've been using SVN for personal projects for quite a while now, so it has just become second nature to me.
