Movable Type code repository

Six Apart opened up Subversion access for its Movable Type blogging tool. The new code repository provides a real-time mirror of the team’s internal code base.

Movable Type is an enterprise product with enterprise release schedules of about one update per year. The new code repository allows Six Apart to more actively engage its bleeding edge users while still maintaining a QA process, internationalization, and the same license/business model.

Open source competitors such as WordPress have of course had open code repositories for years and Movable Type might now be more attractive to developers it is losing to WordPress and other blogging tools.
