Help for this site

This is a code-repository and project management site for software development carried out in the UK academic audio and music research field.

Run by, it is intended to provide a useful facility for researchers who are making software in the course of their work, and for anyone who wishes to make use of such software in the future. We provide project management and hosting for source code, either published or private.

While this service is open to all audio and music researchers in the UK, we do encourage researchers to ensure that they follow the proper institutional protocols for managing their work. If source code control and other facilities are provided by your institution, please, use them; we are also producing resources that we hope will help you to do that, so do keep an eye on our general website.

What facilities do we provide?

This server uses the Redmine project management system, with source code repositories managed using the Mercurial distributed version control system.

Documentation for Redmine is available in the Redmine Guide, and an introductory tutorial about Mercurial can be found at, with a number of usage tips at We are going to produce more tutorial material during the coming months.
