I decided to look for another alternative and found this list of free SVN hosting sites. From the list I decided to choose XP-Dev.com. It's a relatively no frills site, but free. It's only been a couple of days so far, but I really like it. The guy who runs it is very friendly and quick to help.
If you're thinking of moving from Assembla to XP-Dev.com, here are some steps which make it easy:
- Check all your code in to Assembla.
- Download a dump of your repository from Assembla. To do this, click on: SVN/Trac > Import or Export your Subversion repository here > Get SVN Backup
- Set up an account and repository with XP-Dev. This takes about a minute, it's easy. Note that your username and repository name together become the url of your repo, e.g. BradPitt_MyRepoName
- Email your Assembla repository dump and new repository name to XP-Dev support, and they'll set it up for you.
Then just set up a new folder to point to your repository. (With TortoiseSVN - Make a folder. Right click and select 'SVN Checkout'. Give it the server URL and username/password as needed.) Also I recommend keeping your old Assembla linked folder around, just in case you forgot to check a file in.
