Welcome to the ALPS developer wiki

This site is meant as primary ALPS development coordination center. We can now use Trac to

  • track bugs,
  • plan and cooperate on new projects,
  • view the source code.

You need to log in to use almost all features. The usernames and passwords are identical to those for the Subversion repositories.


The ALPS repository is open and can be accessed at:

svn co
