These days the Linux world has largely switched to GIT as it's SCM. Git is a fairly low-level thing, more the backing store of an SCM - or plumbing in Linus's words - than a full-blown SCM but it's growing up very quickly. Linux-mips.org has used CVS since 1997 and so naturally is a little more conservative in switching to a new tools as we don't want to drop all the history that's hidden in these trees. However git is currently being experimented with and it is expected to eventually replace CVS for at least all kernel work.

GIT's rapid development has meant there is little high-level documentation, so here's a local page on WhatIsGit.

Accessing GIT repositories

The GIT repositories can be accessed by rsync://ftp.linux-mips.org/git. There is going to be http access as well but that hasn't been setup yet.
