No, sorry. The public repository contains only the "trunk" of the internal
subversion repository. VBox 5.1.x, 5.0.x are built from branches which are
not public visible. The reason is the effort, not that we have something to
hide (as you can verify by checking the source tarball).

No, we don't, at least at the moment. Subversion is still the proper tool
for our team.
