SugarCRM Public SVN Repository

We are pleased to announce the availability of our new public Subversion (or SVN) system. The SVN system is SugarCRM’s gift back to the open source community as part of our “5 Years of SugarForge” celebration.

Since many developers are familiar with SVN, we will not be providing a full SVN tutorial here. We recommend the Wikipedia page for Subversion for an overview, and the Subversion documentation available at for in-depth information on using Subversion.

To access the SugarCRM public SVN repository, point your preferred SVN client to

Suggested SVN clients are listed include:

Additionally, you can browse the SVN repository through a web browser by visiting our ViewVC page.

At this time, the public SVN repository is set as read-only. We are planning to allow for contributions directly into SVN later this year. For the time being, please see the How to contribute page on SugarForge if you have code to submit to SugarCRM for inclusion in the project.

If you are looking for the current release distribution of Sugar Community Edition, please visit SugarForge to download the full installer instead of checking out the source code from SVN.

The taxonomy of our SVN structure is as follows:


The branches are where maintenance on existing releases occurs. After a new release of Sugar Community Edition, a new branch will be made available for maintenance of that release. Typically this means fixing bugs for existing releases.


Tags establish a baseline of the source code at specific milestones. Tags are snapshots in time of the actual releases of Sugar Community Edition, as produced by SugarCRM.


The trunk is the base of the source code, where all of the latest and greatest development occurs. As such, trunk is generally not considered a stable, production-ready version of the source code.

* At this time, trunk is not available for Sugar Community Edition.
