Forum OpenACS Q&A: Problems with SDM - CVS Source Repository
SDM in OpenACS 3.2.5. I created some test files in the CVS
repository on the local server, and then created a test package in
the SDM. I put in the correct CVS path ("edit cvs for this package"
under Administration) and loaded the CVS files ("get new source
from CVS" on the Source Repository page). However, I can only
see directories, not individual files, in the list on the Source
Repository page produced by package-repository.tcl.
I have checked the server log and do not see any obvious errors
(after correcting some initial permissions problems). I have also
confirmed that the files are being checked out and put into the
OpenACS data directory (/servers/openacs/data/sdm-source).
Please forgive me if this is a stupid/novice question as I am fairly
new to both CVS and OpenACS. I did check the forums and
documentation but didn't find anything relevant to this problem.
I'm running on RedHat Linux 7.0 if it makes any difference.
Thanks - Julie
You may also wish to check out https://openacs.org/sdm/one-baf.tcl?baf_id=1101, which lets you give a name in the ACS to a CVS repository that is not the actual name of the CVS repository. As in openacs.org/sdm showing "AOLserver Postgres Driver" for the name of a repository when the actual CVS name is probably something more like "pg-driver".
under "edit repository properties" to "*" did indeed do the trick.
It would be great if this entire module were better-documented,
because truth be told I really didn't understand what values I was
supposed to enter.
I will check out your patches as well now that OpenACS.org is
back on-line. Thanks again - Julie
