Revision 1.11 - (show annotations)

Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.10: +2 -3 lines
Some updates to the i-scream website. Particularly the entry page has had an
overhaul. It now has a News section and a Current Work section. This should
slightly help in making i-scream not look quite so dead. Once again, my web
design skills aren't great, so changes are welcome :-)

28 <h2>i-scream CVS Repository</h2>
30 <p>The i-scream CVS Repository contains all code,
31 documentation, and other files pertaining to all i-scream projects.</p>
33 <h3>Web Access</h3>
35 <p>We use <a href="">viewcvs</a> to provide a
36 visual frontend to the CVS Repository. It allows you to browse around the
37 repository, viewing any version of a file, and the differences between different
38 versions. There is also a link to download the latest version of any section.</p>
40 <p><a href=""></a></p>
42 <p>We also have a facility to allow people to keep tabs on what's changed
43 recently. The following are available:</p>
45 <p>Commits today: <a href=""></a><br>
46 Commits this week: <a href=""></a><br>
47 Commits in the past 7 days: <a href=""></a><br>
48 Commits made since 29/03/2001: <a href=""></a></p>
50 <h3>Anonymous CVS Access (read-only)</h3>
52 <p>Anyone can access the i-scream CVS repository in
53 anonymous mode read-only mode. The following commands will allow you to check
54 out a portion of the CVS repository. To see what is available it is recommended
55 that you first look at the web frontend.</p>
56 </font>
58 <pre>cvs -d login
59 cvs -d checkout [module]</pre>
61 <font face="Arial" size="2">
62 <p>When asked for a password, simply press enter.
63 Replace [module] with the section you wish to checkout.</p>
65 <h3>Developer CVS Access (write)</h3>
67 <p>The i-scream development team have full write
68 access to the CVS repository. This is only available over SSH, and can be done
69 on most clients. First the following environment variables need to be set.</p>
70 </font>
72 <pre>CVS_RSH = ssh
73 CVSROOT =</pre>
75 <font face="Arial" size="2">
76 <p>You should know your username and password
77 already. After setting these you will need to enter your password each time you
78 use a CVS command. Obviously this is a time wasting event, so an RSA key can be
79 generated and placed on the server for you. Please view the relevant ssh
80 manpages on how to generate an RSA key pair.</p>
82 <p>After this you will be able to work with CVS as
83 normal.</p>
85 <h3>Other means of accessing CVS</h3>
87 <p>We currently provide <a href=""> CVSup</a> access to the repository, either for mirroring or
88 for maintaining an up-to-date local copy. You will probably want to create a
89 supfile that looks something like this;</p>
90 </font>
92 <pre>*default
93 *default base=/home/user/sup
94 *default prefix=/home/user/i-scream
95 *default release=cvs
96 *default delete use-rel-suffix
97 *default compress
98 i-scream.source tag=.</pre>
100 <font face="Arial" size="2">
101 <p>The last item in that list is the collection you which to get. The collection
102 &quot;i-scream&quot; is simply the whole repository, and is best used with no
103 tag specified for mirroring. It is most likely that you will want to do that
104 given above, which gets the latest copy of the i-scream source code.</p>
106 <h3>CVS Statistics</h3>
108 <p>There are some statistics available on the cms module of the CVS
109 repository, generated by <a href="">cvsstat</a>,
110 that allow you to see the progress of development. They're not that exciting,
111 but do show when the work was done.</p>
