I'm trying to access the SVN repository as stated in the documentation: However, I got error when I tried to access it in the browser, and also through the SVN command line.

Should I access the repository somewhere else? This is strange because the official site says that this should work.

From :

25-Jul-2012 Our SVN repository is no longer available since we migrated to git. You can find new links just below, and here is instruction.

OpenCV just migrated from SVN to Git, and not all the links are updated.

Thanks for the info. It wasn't clear from the site. I suspect something like that. Maybe, all the site should be checked, as new people coming to the wiki may get confused.

Yes, but as long there are at least 3 knwn OpenCV sites (, willowgarage and itseez), with many subdomains and wiki, this will take some time... I suppose the guys working there have a lot of work

willowgarage and (update: closed) will be closed soon. will be maintained on a regular basis, but the developer's wiki at will be updated by occasion. You can help us here: :)

While we're updating the documentation and wiki, be aware that OpenCV has live mirror on GitHub that besides all provides read-only access to the sources via SVN protocol. So if you prefer not git but SVN, just make
svn checkout
to get 2.4.2 tag.

truncate the above link to to be able to browse the repo and select what you want. Link above gives 404 onClick.

I found the test suite that I want at However, when i try to git clone it, i get fatal: not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server?

I also tried git clone and got the same error.
