Managing repository management is always a hassle for network administrators, as it usually involves going into into the shell to create the repository itself.
Redmine solves this problem using reposman.rb, which can be run regularly by a cronjob and thus automate repository creation. But this is still inconvenient—you still need to wait for the repository to be created, and you can only manage one type of SCM at once. Thus, we are going to install and configure the Redmine SCM Creator plugin to manage repository creation for us.
This tutorial is oriented primarily towards setting up SVN repository creation, as git repository management is better done by the Redmine Git Hosting plugin (Setup Guide). For instructions on how to set up Redmine, visit this tutorial before continuing on.
