Versioning System Backend

Currently, Trac is tightly integrated with Subversion.

Any given TracEnvironment addresses one and only one Subversion repository. However, nothing prevents you from setting up multiple Trac Environments on top of the same Subversion repository. This can be handy to manage separately different products which share the same code repository.

Other Versioning Systems

As mentioned in the TracHistory, Trac was inspired by CVSTrac, a project management and issue tracking system which uses CVS as its versioning system backend (and like Trac, it uses SQLite as its DatabaseBackend, which isn't surprising considering the fact that the author of CVSTrac is also the author of SQLite) (1).

The versioning systems known to work with Trac are:

Among other things, Subversion is not a strict requirement anymore, and there's support for pluggable backends (IRepositoryConnector, see TracMercurial for an example).

In addition, there has been interest in the following systems:

It should be mentioned that CVSTrac also aims to support more SCM backends, SVN and git being worked on.
