Comparison of free private source code repositories

If you are a freelancer or have an idea that you wish to develop with a friend (or maybe yourself), it is likely that you are looking for a SVN repository. At the same time you may wish not to opt for public repository which makes your code public to all. If you do not want to invest in a server or expensive online repository accounts, following table may help you. It represents a list and comparison of good source code repository options which provide some level of free usage.
