starting with GIT source control

Install git if you don't have it and verify version.

git --version
git version (Apple Git-33)

git config --global user.name "Uki D. Lucas"
git config --global user.email "uki@CyberWalkAbout.com"

Trying to "Clone" remote repository

$ git clone "ssh://git@xyz.xyz.com/xyz/xyz.git" .
Cloning into '.'...

Warning: Permanently added the RSA host key for IP address '' to the list of known hosts.
Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

Add your public key to the external git repository

cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | pbcopy

Paste it in a notepad:

ssh-rsa AAAAB..........

If you don't have, you can create your public key using command: 
ssh-keygen -t rsa -C ""

If you added your RSA key successfully, try clone again:

uki:git_test uki$ git clone "ssh://zzz@zz.zzz.com/zzz/zzzz.git" .

after the OS X v10.8.2 upgrade (Mountain Lion)

problem 1) SVN is missing

$ svn up
-bash: svn: command not found

Downloading svn subversion 1.6.17 here.

“Subversion-1.6.17-1_10.7.x.pkg” can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.

Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers.

Searched App Store for svn.. nothing.

Log in with Apple Developer account here.

Download "Command Line Tools (OS X Mountain Lion)"

After installing the xcode452cltools10_86938211a.dmg package:

$ which svn

$ svn --version
svn, version 1.6.16 (r1073529)
   compiled Jul 20 2011, 13:37:48

It is still OLD svn, but it will do. :)
