Wesnoth has been registered in Savannah

Post by miyo »

Greetings,

topic says it all... and the magic URL is here - http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/wesnoth

This has allowed us (read: Dave) to start using (read: learning) CVS.

You can checkout latest and greatest with: cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org:/cvsroot/wesnoth co wesnoth

And to stay up-to-date go to wesnoth dir you checked out from CVS and run: cvs -z3 update -dP

After running an update, you should always run 'make clean' before 'make'

cvs tips

Post by zas »

To log in the first time use:
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org:/cvsroot/wesnoth login
Then press Enter (no password)

To retrieve current cvs tree:
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anoncvs@subversions.gnu.org:/cvsroot/wesnoth co wesnoth

It will create a wesnoth directory where you are, and download all files.

After when you need to update the tree:
cd wesnoth && cvs -z3 update -dP



For CVS writers:

Add /* $Id$ */ to all text files (especially sources) it will be expanded by cvs to something useful ;)

you can use .cvsignore files to force cvs to ignore some files at commit time:

echo '*.swp' > .cvsignore

Note you need one .cvsignore per directory in tree afaik.

I did not need to use login.

About the CVS...

Would it be possible to set a cron in the CVS server to make a (nightly?) CVS tarball and put it somewhere public?

I would love to checkout CVS (and check in once I start contributing some code) but the place I'm living right now has a ugly proxy that does not let me do anything but telnet/ftp/http out of my computer :-( I'm working on a tunnel thru telnet so I might be able to use other services normally, but I'm afraid that might take a week, and might not even work.

Thanks!

Sorry to resurrect an old topic, but would it be possible to implement aforementioned nightly tarballs? I've tried 5 different sets of instructions for DLing the CVS version but the operation always times out.

I've even tried GUI front-ends, thinking I'm making some silly mistake with the command line, but even then I can never contact the server.

Did you do:

Code: Select all

export CVS_RSH=ssh
...before running cvs checkout|update?
