The Colorado Software Summit and Spring 3.0's SVN
In a little over two weeks, my favorite conference begins in Keystone, Colorado. The reason I like it so much is because it's an annual gathering (this will be my 4th year) with friends and it's somewhat like a vacation, except you get to learn a lot. This year I'll be speaking about Appcelerator and Spring 3.0.
A few weeks ago, I wondered How open source is Spring and expressed my frustration in not being able to find the source code. At almost the same time, SpringSource's controversial maintenance policy was announced. Developers booed, Free Spring was founded and SpringSource changed their tune. In addition, someone sent me the FishEye URL for Spring 3.0's SVN. From that, I was able to figure out how to get Spring 3.0's source code.
svn co https://src.springframework.org/svn/spring-framework/trunk spring-3.0
The only bad news is FishEye shows the last change as "17 September 2008 ... (21 days ago)". If Spring 3.0 M1 is supposed to be released any day now, you'd think there would be more SVN commits. Anyone from SpringSource care to comment?

We haven't had much time for actual work on 3.0 M1 yet because we've been too busy at the 2.5.6 preparation front (also dm Server 1.0.1, SWF 2.0.4, SWS 1.5.5). There hasn't been a definitive 2.5.6 CVS snapshot to be uploaded to the 3.0 SVN repo yet, which is why the SVN repo is still incomplete. We're simply behind schedule.
We expect to take the 2.5.6 snapshot and upload it to the 3.0 repo within a few days. You're going to see a rush of M1 work in the next couple of weeks, with the M1 release scheduled for the end of October. Key themes for M1 are REST and EL; the rest (in particular EE 6 oriented stuff) will follow in M2 and M3 up until January.Cheers, Juergen

By simply going one level up (https://fisheye.springframework.org/), you can find all of the FishEye Repositories.
