Just export your DDS and RPGLE to an i project and use SVN in conjunction with RDI and you should be good.

No need to be fancy.

Just need to commit to using RDI to move source to the I when it needs to be compiled.

I believe there are some tutorials out there on how to do it. It just didn't feel right to me. I prefer the source library to be the master and SVN the backup.

Roll your own approach. Not for the faint of heart :-)

Ok. I was looking for a way to include my DDS and RPGLE code into an existing svn repository. We use svn for everything else and the IBM i stuff just sits sort of on its own outside the repository. It would be nice to have all the source in one place. I'm not faint of heart, but I'm also not convinced it is worth spending a lot of time on.

if you want to understand why that is, there are many good books on the design of operating systems. please pass them along to redmond when you're done reading them :)
