The root URL for the 2011 repository is https://neuromorphs.net/svn/nm/.

Linked to all projects, since all will store and share code, data, and designs.

This 30 minute tutorial will show you how to use  SubVersion for software repository and project development. (The preceding link is the umbrella link for SubVersion.)

If you are a Windows user, you can prepare by installing the lovely subversion client  TortoiseSVN. Linux users probably have a command line client by default. MacOS users like  Versions (but it costs money). The netbeans and eclipse IDEs have built-in support.

Local copies of a recent installers are attached below.
