The MIT Kerberos sources are in a [[Subversion]] repository.
* [[Getting source code]]
=== Subversion repository access ===
* svn://anonsvn.mit.edu/krb5 provides read-only [[Subversion]] access to the repository.
* [[Committers]] have access to a URI that allows them to commit changes to the repository.
=== Repository browsing ===
* [http://src.mit.edu/fisheye/browse/krb5 FishEye] provides a feature-rich view of the repository
* [http://src.mit.edu/opengrok/ OpenGrok] provides an interface that allows you to search for the definition or usage of a specific function; it is somewhat better for cross references than FishEye.
* http://anonsvn.mit.edu/viewvc/krb5 provides a more basic form of web access to the entire repository.
<!-- was /svn/krb5; pending ops installation of backwards compat link-->
* See the Github mirror information below for another browsing alternative.
=== Git-svn mirror ===
Additional information is available about [[using git-svn]].
* git://krbdev.mit.edu/git/krb5-anonsvn is a git-svn mirror of the anonsvn repository.
* https://github.com/krb5/krb5-anonsvn is a Github repository that mirrors the krb5-anonsvn repository. The web interface allows for repository browsing, and also displays URLs for git access using both native git protocol and HTTPS (for firewall traversal, etc.).

This page lists resources that developers use on a regular basis. One goal of the page is to help those beginning to track the project know what they may be interested in looking at.


  • The Installation Guide describes how to build and install MIT Kerberos.
  • The documentation site contains administrator and user documentation; while not directly targeted at developers, this documentation helps understand the product.
  • The Glossary is a quick index of acronyms and terms related to Kerberos, which you may come across while reading the code.
  • Plugin development notes, pointers, tips, etc (needed!)

Mailing lists

Much of the discussion of new proposals, discussion of what direction to take the product and answering of questions takes place on mailing lists.

Source code

Bug tracking

  • http://krbdev.mit.edu/rt/ is the interface to the bug tracking server.
  • Log in with user name guest and password guest. (or use the guest login button)
  • See doc/procedures.txt (raw | annotated | history) for some information on bug states.

Instant messaging
