Forum OpenACS Development: OpenACS CVS
integration into the SDM, and that's much easier to do by having
our local CVS installation (not to mention that SourceForge CVS
has been flaky or slow at times). OpenACS 3.2.4/3.2.5/3.2.x
development will remain on SourceForge and we will continue to
improve that branch at least until 4.x is totally ready to go.
You can already check things out anonymously using pserver
CVS (empty password for the anonymous user) with CVSROOT
openacs.org:/cvsroot - But don't expect any of this code to work
yet! We've just begun. Post to this thread if you have any CVS
cvs checkout openacs-4
I'm still wondering where the pg driver code is, though.
maybe it should go to opennsd.org ... or both! I have to say that this
is a rather pleasant dilema to be facing for a change!
cvs -d:pserver:mailto:email@example.com:/cvsroot login
(which was found in the What is the OpenACS Platform thread) and the
method mentioned previously in this thread.
In each case I am returned to my shell prompt (not the cvs prompt)
immediately after entering an empty password at the password prompt.
Is there a password I need for anonymous access?
poison. just type 'cvs co acs-core' at the bash prompt (or
driver-2.3 if you want that)
CVS (and most UNIX programs) don't return anything if there wasn't an error. So if you don't get an error message you are sucessfully logged in. From there you can issue the CVS command to checkout the source.
Thanks Pascal & Dave for the speedy replies to my dumb question...
I have just posted a file on new-file-storage about how to use the
OpenACS CVS server:
I've been using CVS the last four months and still can't figure it out, I think it is trying to annoy us. or something.
combination that I could think of, including the two listed above on this page
