svnlite(1) removed from FreeBSD base

Software

This was decided a year ago, but still felt like the end of an era in an old VM over the weekend:

The following files will be removed as part of updating to
13.1-RELEASE-p0:
/usr/bin/svnlite
/usr/bin/svnliteadmin
/usr/bin/svnlitebench
/usr/bin/svnlitedumpfilter
/usr/bin/svnlitefsfs
/usr/bin/svnlitelook
/usr/bin/svnlitemucc
/usr/bin/svnliterdump
/usr/bin/svnliteserve
/usr/bin/svnlitesync
/usr/bin/svnliteversion

FreeBSD moved to git starting in 2019. I miss and prefer svn, but I empathise why it was necessary. In some alternate universe, Linus moved to it instead of building git, just as he adopted BSD instead of writing the Linux kernel. One can dream.

Author bio and support

Me!

Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.
