Bleeding Edge MAME / MESS source downloads (GIT)

For tracking MAME / MESS bleeding edge progress it’s a surprisingly unknown fact that there are public mirrors of the private SVN, hosted by the MESS guys.

http://git.redump.net/cgit.cgi/mame/
http://git.redump.net/cgit.cgi/mess/

This means that the latest MAME /MESS source snapshots can always be downloaded at

http://git.redump.net/cgit.cgi/mame/snapshot/mame-master.zip
http://git.redump.net/cgit.cgi/mess/snapshot/mess-master.zip

Note, this is quite demanding on the server, so it might take a while to respond and give you the download, especially for MESS which needlessly has a lot of artwork in the package bumping it to 60mb in size. Obviously if you can set up a GIT client, and sync manually, rather than downloading the complete package every time it will be a lot quicker and less demanding, if anybody has a guide to this on Windows I can publish it.

For MESS the normal SVN is of course already public read at

svn://messdev.no-ip.org/mess

so the GIT mirror isn’t strictly necessary, and an SVN client is much easier to install and use on Windows (just use TortoiseSVN it’s near enough plug-and-play unlike the GIT counterpart)
