As promised in an earlier news item, we have moved source code hosting from gna.org to github.com.
PISM now requires PETSc 3.2.
For now, this change affects the development version, but the Spring
stable0.5 release will be available at
github.com only and will not support
PETSc 3.1 and earlier.
You can find the new repository at https://github.com/pism/pism.
We now use Git http://git-scm.com/ to manage the source code. Use the following command if you already have Git and want the stable version:
git clone git://github.com/pism/pism.git pism0.4
In the current setup this
master branch contains the latest stable
release (i.e. 0.4 these days). Please do not commit to
because stable releases are managed by PISM developers at UAF.
Contributed code should go into the
dev branch; this is the
trunk in the old Subversion repository. The
following will put you on the
cd pism0.4 git checkout dev
Also, you can still use Subversion to get the code– no need to install Git on a supercomputer, just run
svn co https://github.com/pism/pism pism0.4
Please use https://github.com/pism/pism/issues to report bugs, submit tasks, or request features. (You will need to create a http://github.com account.) If you would like to contribute to PISM then see committing.
Switching from Subversion to Git may take some getting used to; below are two links to resources we recommend:
The repository at http://web.archive.org/web/20170331083829/https://gna.org/projects/pism/ will still be there, but will not be updated. In other words, you have to use the new one to get bug-fixes.
