Subject RE: buildnumber Ant task & automated updates of ivy.xml
Date Thu, 20 Nov 2008 16:46:54 GMT
If the source comes from CVS, we tag it.  If the source comes from SVN, I use the CI system
to set an ANT property based on what subversion revision was checked out which gets resolved
and stored into the ivy.xml file for publishing.  Then any published build will contain the
ivy.xml file which contains the revision number from subversion from which it was built. 
Once nice feature of subversion.

I'm curious: Given a build number, how do you later find the
corresponding sources in SVN? Does the CI system tag the sources
with the auto-incremented build number?
