A quick and efficient way to collaborate with an IzPack developer that has a repository on GitHub is to:

Historical considerations

A complete Git conversion of the old Subversion repository can be found at http://github.com/jponge/izpack-full-svn-history-copy (keep in mind that because it is based on the full repository, there are no branches and tags informations, just a linear branch which maps the Subversion revisions).

IzPack first used CVS, then switch in 2004 to Subversion. It switched again, this time to Git, in 2010.
