Subversion repository moved to Google Code

We have moved our SVN repository to Google Code, as it provides us with a huge storage capacity (1G), reliability and hopefully good uptimes, which may not be able to provide at all times. Because the repository has changed and we used svnsync to import the project into Google Code, you need to get a fresh checkout of the repository. (Note that svn switch –relocate does not work in this case):

$ svn checkout FreeNOS
