Setting up a subversion server
By John Clingan-Oracle on Feb 01, 2007
I finally got around to setting up a subversion server on the x2100. For now I am using the svnserve approach. FYI, svn+ssh has been unsuccessful because I keep getting a "connection closed" error. Googling on "packet length" errors tells me it may be an SSH versioning issue. FWIW, I'm using the cygwin ssh client. Hint: Hints are welcome
The subversion server is up and running (without ssh), with the primary role of managing the Container Demo. I have been getting a steady set of requests as of late for features. Once I get the demo "refreshed", I'll post the code and perhaps look into a place to house it (OpenSolaris.org makes sense).
I started my development career with RCS. Loved it's simplicity. Since I developed primarily in a vacuum, it worked out great I've also done work with PVCS, CVS, tar, cp -r, zip, and rm -r. Ssssooo, why subversion? Well, it is what my customers are using and I figure it'll help me keep up with them. I am especially interested in how Subversion works with revision numbers and directories. Of course, NetBeans supports Subversion, so my versioning life is greatly simplified.
