From: mose <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: [Tikiwiki-devel] CVS strategy, what after 1.9 ... Date: Sat, 7 May 2005 14:08:37 +0200 yo Here are some ideas about what we could do for further development and next version of tikiwiki. It's just an arbitrary proposal, that can become real if nobody contests with legitimate arguments. Anyway everything is of course a possible subject of discussion and variations. * 1.10 HEAD is deadend. People that committed there last year don't remember what was done there, because it has not been used, thus unmaintained. * Then I think about overwriting HEAD with current BRANCH-1-9. It would reset the tiki-1.9to1.10.sql file of course. * BRANCH-1-9 branch will then only accept bugfixes. No db change should occur there, to make easy upgrades for further 1.9.x versions. Visual enhencements and translations are welcome there. * renewed HEAD can become 1.10 -arcturus- (upon public decision) http://tikiwiki.org/tiki-poll_results.php?pollId=6 New stuff can be introduced there. * merges can then continue from BRANCH-1-9 to HEAD. The tikimerge script just needs to be enhanced to take in account some exceptions to the merges : refactored libs and language files at least. (any others). * other branches can start from HEAD if motivated by a serious development project and the necessity of isolated arbitrary activity, with or without merges depending the range of change. for any question or comment, talk publically. cheers, mose for the TAG (Tikiwiki Admin Group)
No contestation have been noticed after 5 days, then I plan to proceed to the CVS operations as soon as possible.
Here are the planned steps :
# go to irc://irc.freenode.net/#tikiwiki and shout "Freeze!" mkdir tikimanip && cd tikimanip export CVSROOT=":ext:email@example.com:/cvsroot/tikiwiki" cvs rtag BEFORE-REFRESH-1-10 tikiwiki cvs co -d tiki110 tikiwiki cvs rtag -r BRANCH-1-9 BEFORE-REFRESH-1-9 tikiwiki cvs co -d tiki19 -r BEFORE-REFRESH-1-9 tikiwiki # preparing future merges cvs rtag -r BRANCH-1-9 -F BRANCH-1-9-HEAD tikiwiki cd tiki110 cat ~/bin/refresh.sh #!/bin/sh HEAD="/home/mose/tikimanip/tiki110" BRANCH="/home/mose/tikimanip/tiki19" TAG="BEFORE-REFRESH-1-9" cd $HEAD rm -f ref.sh echo "#!/bin/sh" > ref.sh for i in `find $BRANCH -name Entries`;do DIR=`dirname $i` DIR=`dirname $DIR` for j in `grep T$TAG $i | cut -d/ -f2`;do F=`echo "$DIR/$j" | sed -e "s~$BRANCH/~~"` echo "cp -pf $BRANCH/$F $F" >> ref.sh DF=`dirname $F` if [ ! -d $DF ]; then echo "mkdir $DF" >> ref.sh echo "cvs add $DF" >> ref.sh fi if [ ! -f $F ]; then echo "cvs add $F" >> ref.sh fi done done for i in `find $HEAD -name Entries`;do DIR=`dirname $i` DIR=`dirname $DIR` for j in `grep '^/' $i | cut -d/ -f2`;do F=`echo "$DIR/$j" | sed -e "s~$HEAD/~~"` if [ ! -f $BRANCH/$F ]; then echo "cvs remove -f $F" >> ref.sh fi done done echo "Done." exit 0 # run refresh.sh script, that will generate a ref.sh script in tiki110 ~/bin/refresh.sh # edit the file and comment some lines that are not relevant (published on http://tikiwiki.org/RefreshHEAD.txt) vi ref.sh # run ref.sh, that will copy files and issue cvs add and remove commands ./ref.sh cvs ci -m'Head Refresh Operation' # break syncmail # shout on irc "HEAD refresh operation done.
