Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to How do you separate project customisations from improvements?
OK, so we're just getting started. I checked out openacs-4 from the openacs repository and imported it into my repository with
cvs import myservice openacs openacs4-cvs-20011029
So what should I do to implement the two-branch vision discussed here? Let's say I want to make changes that I want rolled back into the toolkit. I'm going to change two files: packages/acs-subsite/www/admin/site-map/parameter-set.tcl and packages/acs-tcl/tcl/defs-procs.tcl. Do I make the changes and tag those files only? Do I checkout all of myservice and tag the whole thing with a tag that will be for changes that we want to get added to the toolkit, and then change those files and merge the changes back into my main trunk? That scenario looks complicated--you would be forever checking in, merging, then checking out so you could test on your trunk.
