Asking for recommendation of good utilities to make software development painless.

Hello,
I am developing some big project (300K+ lines of code).
The all code is in C.

Code repository is on remote server based of fedora.

Now I'm on Windows(for some reason I can't change, the OS to Linux).

Now the requirement is the next.

I need to modify code from my Windows and make it more convenient and smart way.
Currently I use these software:
1. sshfs  to mount remote server on virtual box fedora  in windows. (pretty complicated)
2. codeblocks,  to find declaration and definitions.

So as you see it's pretty complicated to modify source code also it's very slow to save or browse remote files on codeblocks.

Thank you.

Better you use an online code repository like BitBucket or GitHub. They offer you a free account for private projects (few users).

You can install subversion in Linux server and it will work perfectly as SVN+SSH server

I forgot to mention that I have already installed git + sshfs.
when I start gitk and try to get the diff between commited source and current modified, seems it needs 10 minutes to get the diff. Maybe that's because there are a lot of files there?

find . -name  "*.c" | wc -l
586
find . -name  "*.h" | wc -l
149
find . -name  "*.*" | wc -l
1568
find . -name  "*.c" | xargs wc -l
282879
find . -name  "*.h" | xargs wc -l
21917

find . -name  "*.h" | xargs wc -c
668397
find . -name  "*.c" | xargs wc -c
9137784
find . -name  "*.o" | xargs wc -c
18865544
find . -name  "*.*" | xargs wc -c

How do you think does svn work faster with such source code?
I can definetely exclude files without extension and with extension .o
This should speed up.

SSHFS is always too slow to use and it does not support any file locking for multi-user repository. BTW nobody made you use it.

SVN will work over ssh connection.
