For discussion - CVS at sourceforge

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi all,

  it started when Ismael posted the Analogize script, then i noticed 
he had a German web page in some kind of source forge-like 
management system... which set me thinking ... hmm... how about 
giving source forge a try and see what it is like ?

  So after a few days of tinkering with it, here is a look at the 
project page i set up .. Hope you can see it, because their CVS 
server is facing some problems lately (but generally response from 
their help desk seems to be very good)

  Here's some plus points about the source forge system :

1) "Unlimited" screen shots space !! Ha Ha.. i'm a kind of visual 
guy, so i like to see the screen before i'll download something..
Compared to the photos area of yahoogroups, we have a couple photos 
and it's already hitting 15%..

2) Frees up file management space from your PC, don't need to worry 
about hard disk crash, let the good source forge people worry about 
that !!

3) Packaging. Won't it be nice if you can just download ONE and only 
ONE tarball/zip and unzip it to get the collection of the latest 
versions of your favourite scripts running up in no time ?

4) Versioning. Without CVS, i use something like file-name-1.0.scm,
 file-name-2.0.scm ... Works fine ! but takes up a lot of disk space!
 With CVS, throw away the backup, you can always get another copy
 from the server..

5) keep the file name simple ! All different versions are managed by
CVS but the file name stays the same  : file-name.scm
So you can get the latest version, just by overiding it, instead of
deleting a lot of old versions.

Some potential problem,

1) still need to keep different version names to store in the Files 
archive at yahoogroup, otherwise the version is not apparent until 
you open the file to look..

any comments?
