Hello folks,

In bootstrap.py is there any logical reason why we can’t use %sfmethod for anonymous as well as authenticated access to the cctbx_project sources i.e. in

# Core CCTBX repositories
# These must all provide anonymous access.
class cctbx_module(SourceModule):
  module = 'cctbx_project'
  anonymous = ['svn','svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/cctbx/code/trunk']
  authenticated = ['svn', '%(sfmethod)s://%(sfuser)s at svn.code.sf.net/p/cctbx/code/trunk']

also respect %(sfmethod) in place of svn as transport layer. Will help people behind firewalls.

Appreciate that this will also need changing when we move to git anyhow… but meantimes there are people out there this would help. Not keen to make this change myself without checking first…!

Thanks & best wishes Graeme
