I changed the version control system of Geany from CVS to subversion. In my opinion subversion is better and easier. I disabled the CVS availability on Sourceforge, so only subversion is available.
To do a checkout: svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/geany/trunk geany
And you can view the repository in your browser, too. Just visit: http://svn.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.cgi/geany/
All information are also available on Geany's website.
I wrote a little script, which creates a nightly tarball from the subversion repository. The script runs daily at 04:27 UTC. The tarball can be downloaded from http://files.uvena.de/geany/geany_svn.tar.bz2
