Forum OpenACS Improvement Proposals (TIPs): Re: TIP #25 (Proposed): No direct manipulation of the CVS repository

Roberto, enough people are on windows or are potentially on windows that this is a major problem. If they are, it's reasonable to recommend they use Cygwin, but if that part is busted, then they are massively screwed. The only resolution would be for them to use a CVS repo which is synched with Arch, but that is far less than optimal.

I was the first advocate of moving to GNU Arch, and I even host (along with Mat Kovach). But I still think Arch is 6 months to a year away from being ready for the OpenACS community to embrace it.

CVS may suck, but it's a least common denominator that most people understand and can use. If individual developers are willing to use Arch and synch that with a canonical CVS repo, that would be the fastest way to get moving with this stuff.
