automated svn tarball usage
« on: March 14, 2006, 11:56:26 AM »

Hi there!

Just a short note for everyone who plans on (or already does) using the cvs tarballs from hirnriss.net inside some script job like ebuilds or automaticly created rpm/deb repositories.

Please use http://amule.hirnriss.net/aMule-CVS-{date}.tar.bz2 (like http://amule.hirnriss.net/aMule-CVS-20060314.tar.bz2) as your download url.
The reason is quite simple: while i continue making changes to the server every now and then, this url will be always the same, since i use rewrite rules to make them fit to the new layout.
The same goes for the main cvs page. If you point to http://amule.hirnriss.net/ you will always be on the safe side, since that will be redirected to the real cvs page as well.

That's it. Have fun!

Wouldn't it be better to change to http://amule.hirnriss.net/aMule-SVN-{date}.tar.bz2

Hi bootstrap! :)

Isn't there a way to keep the address  http://amule.hirnriss.net/ in the browser after the page loads?

What happens here is that the URL is changed to http://www.hirnriss.net/?area=cvs after the page loads, and you know, hirnriss is not something easy to spell, so I tend to press reload in that page instead of re-typing the correct address.

Cheers!

Never mind about that. Or use something neutral, not SVN. Imagine if from now on we start using mercurial? Then should we have to change everything to hg?

Cheers!

Agreed. Something like amule-snap-$DATE.arj  ;)  or  amule-devsrc-$DATE.tar.bz2  --  since the important information is that it's a dump of the most-current developer code.

There couldn't be a less critical piece of information than what VC it was pulled out of, something that won't ever differentiate the file or give the downloader any sort of choices/direction.

(Unless the core devteam goes completely schizoid and decides to maintain the codebase in multiple competing VC systems simultaneously.)  ...Ooh!  :o

          Battlin' Version Control!
Just the thing to spice up the build process! This could be even more thrilling than Extreme Coding!

Does our intrepid source-build adventurer choose to...
  • Download the source exported from SVN, bravely charging into battle against an army of  little .svn directories!?! (Is the filesystem's inode table strong enough to hold their weight?!?)
  • Trust that the CVS snapshot was generated from the HEAD, and not some obscure branch of the tree? (Will UploadBandwidthThrottler.cpp revision 1.3.1.1.4.1.0.57 really compile and link in?!?)
  • Say a silent prayer to whatever deity she/he {worships, fears, owes money to}, and have faith that all 17 of the project's git servers are properly in sync? (Stay tuned to find out if the snapshot changes depending which continent the tarball was generated from!!!)

All kidding aside, just toss the VC-system ident from the filename. The rest of these "suggestions" would obviously be an awful idea IRL.

...Except for the part about using ARJ files!  ::)


(...I can't believe I registered just to post this. And HOLY CRAP it's a pain in the arj to approximate [indent] using tables.)
