Emacs uses Git as its version control system since 2014-11-12. This page is therefore out of date and mainly of historical interest.

GNU Emacs Is Now In Bazaar
2009-12-27: GNU Emacs has now switched from CVS to Bazaar. Please see BzrForEmacsDevs for more.
Where Are the Emacs Sources Now?
- Get bzr+ssh access working, so we don’t have to use sftp. See sr #107077.
- Make sure commit emails work.
- Fix the email diff generator, if necessary. See sr #106531.
- Update http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/.
- Update http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/emacs. (There are four different VCS repositories including the bzr one. This page should state clearly that Bazaar is the master.)
- Update http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/#Obtaining ("The GNU Emacs development sources are available via a CVS repository hosted on savannah.gnu.org. For details, see the Emacs project page.")
- Update CategoryBuilding (that page and a lot of pages linked from there instruct that latest Emacs should be fetched from CVS).
- Document how to do a release from bzr (or adjust our existing release procedure documentation… where is it, anyway?) Possibly …emacs/admin/FOR-RELEASE
