    88As an open-source development effort, YAM is using a source code versioning system. We use the subversion (SVN) versioning tool and the SVN respository facilities provided by the trac engine this web site is running on. All latest, but also source code of older versions (back to version 2.2) are stored in this repository and are available to all interested developers.

    10 Our SVN repository can be accessed either as an anonymous user, or as a registered YAM developer. You require a subversion (SVN) client, if  you don't already have one. SVN is available for AmigaOS compatible systems from AmiNET (http://www.aminet.net/search.php?query=subversion) and should also be available for most Unix operating systems, easily available on *BSD systems. In addition, there are also clients available for Win32 and MacOS.

    1212The following instructions on how to access our repository should be the bare-bones needed to get you started with YAM and SVN; this is not a SVN tutorial. However, there exists a very good online tutorial at http://svnbook.red-bean.com/ and  there are many HOWTOs available on the web as well.

     46== SSL certificate warnings == 
     47As we don't have an explicit SSL certificate for the yam.ch domain the SVN server is running the same SSL certificate like the supplier of the server we are running these webpages on. So in case you try to checkout the YAM sources from our SVN repository via https you will receive a certificate warning similar to: 
     48 
     49{{{ 
     50Error validating server certificate for 'https://svn.yam.ch:443': 
     51 - The certificate is not issued by a trusted authority. Use the 
     52   fingerprint to validate the certificate manually! 
     53 - The certificate hostname does not match. 
     54Certificate information: 
     55 - Hostname: *.light-speed.de 
     56 - Valid: from Thu, 25 Jun 2009 06:43:57 GMT until Tue, 24 Jun 2014 06:43:57 GMT 
     57 - Issuer: MainServer (Karlsruhe), LightSpeed Communications GbR, Dresden, Sachsen, DE 
     58 - Fingerprint: a2:6a:6c:ce:a6:1c:0b:a8:4c:e6:e6:63:19:74:0b:54:39:fa:8b:99 
     59(R)eject, accept (t)emporarily or accept (p)ermanently?  
     60}}}

     62However, if the ''Fingerprint'' in your warning is exactly the same like the above one you are safe to permanently accept that warning as this is a valid certificate which still allows to encrypt the data connection but is simply issued for a different domain. 
     63 
     64If your SVN version doesn't show such a certificate warning please make sure you have the latest version available of it. In case you have AmigaOS3 or AmigaOS4 you can try the latest version on AmiNET (http://aminet.net/package/dev/misc/subversion-1.1.4).
