CVS snapshots
« on: August 05, 2003, 07:24:34 am »

Because of the sourceforge problems with anonymous cvs I've made a script that automatically creates cvs snapshots of the uqm source excluding the content.
Every 4 hours it will check if there are changes in cvs, and if so, it will make a new snapshot.
You can find it at http://uqm.stack.nl/files/snapshots/.

Nifty.  According to an email I received from someone with an idea of what's going on at SourceForge, they're waiting on new hardware, and the CVS woes will be over for everyone soon.  If this is true, then what you're offering is (thankfully) a short-term solution.

As for the tar.gz file listed, I think it includes itself as well as the files you intended to bundle, which could be considered a bug.  Sad

Gentle readers: if you patch your own tree, you'll want to avoid using this, as it could overwrite any changes you have made.  If you just want to be on the bleeding edge, then this is quite a bit faster than CVS.  Hooray.

The .tar.gz file includes itself?
That would be weird as I'm packing from an entirely different dir, with the -C option to tar, and then doing a seperate gzip command.
And in fact the file that's up there (it's still the same file) doesn appear to include that file, or in fact any .tar.gz file.

OK, I just looked again, and something about the file trips up on a bug in Stuffit Expander, which causes it to unpack the contents of the file recursively until it crashes.  Adorable.

tar works just fine, however, so I'll assume it's "cockpit error" over here and withdraw my comment.
