Creative Commons uses Subversion and Git repositories at for source code management. Subversion (svn) clients are included with Linux and Mac OS X. Windows users can use Tortoise SVN.

ccPublisher and some dependencies are still housed at; those modules will be moved to eventually.

Checking Out Source

We moved our primary source repository from to in March, 2008. Note that we only support public key authentication for our repositories.


     $svn co svn+ssh://
  • write permission: email with your public key; if you had write permission at Sourceforge, please include your username so we can map your key correctly.


     $git clone git://
  • read/write access:
     $git clone

See the ccTools Subversion Information page for details on checking out code hosted at Berlios (ccPublisher).
