What the difference between "SimpleInjector" and "SimpleServiceLocator" repositories in source control?

Simple Injector and Simple Service Locator in the source code?

Yes, that's a bit of legacy that we're dragging behind. The project's original name was "Simple Service Locator", but it was rebranded to "Simple Injector" later on. Unfortunately it wasn't possible to rename the folders in the FTS system of CodePlex at that point. We had to stick with that.

The "SimpleServiceLocator" is now used as mainline/trunk. Here you find the latest check ins and this is where the next minor release (2.1) is currently being developed. All other folders such as "SimpleInjectorV1", "SimpleInjectorV1-contributors", and "SimpleInjector2.0" are branches. "SimpleInjector2.0" is used for all development under the 2.0.x branch (basically bugfixes after the 2.0.0 release) and the "SimpleInjectorV1" and "SimpleInjectorV1-contributors" are used for bugfixes and changes for the v1.x releases.

I hope this answers the question.
