If you do not have a login and password for accessing the ASAM SVN server, or you do not have the necessary access rights that you need for your work, then please contact the Project Leader of your work group. He will request access to the SVN server with corresponding access rights from ASAM for you. The SVN administrator will then send to you the login and password information.

If you have correct access rights, but you encounter technical problems while working with the ASAM SVN server, then please consult first the SVN Client FAQ page. It might already contain the answer to your problem.

If you problem cannot be solved with the above mentioned measures, then please contact ASAM Technical Support.
