Problem about Team Foundation Server

Apr 1, 2013 at 7:17 AM
Hi everyone,

My problem is about the connecting to Team Foundation Server. When I downloaded the DotSpatial's source code and opened it, there was a dialog ask about the connecting to tfs.codeplex.com, it required the username and password. Can anyone help me this problem? I have no idea about the username and password. If anybody knows, please help me. I'm a newcomer of programming open source GIS and I want to focus on DotSpatial. Thank you!

Hi. TFS access is only available to people with code commit rights. Until you get code commit rights for this project then you will have to use SVN to retrieve the source. You can do it using TortoiseSVN and this link: https://dotspatial.svn.codeplex.com/svn. SVN access does not require a user name and password.

Here are some instructions for using TortoiseSVN for CodePlex: https://codeplex.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Using%20TortoiseSVN%20with%20CodePlex

If you would like to get code commit rights, then you just need to supply a couple of patches and code fixes through the discussion forum or issue tracker. Then when the other team members have seen some good examples, then we can give you commit rights and you can use TFS to commit directly.

There is some discussion about the general procedure for getting commit rights on this page: https://dotspatial.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=GettingSourceCode&referringTitle=Documentation
