Would you like access? Heck, would you like to be on the Gump PMC?

leosimons@vmgump:/usr/local/gump/public/workspace/directory-naming$ svn
svn: '' is not a working copy directory

Could you be more specific?

If that's what you really want. Just comment out the <nag/> elements in the
descriptors and no e-mail will be sent.

I'll point out that in general if your build "keeps breaking" (rather than
being broken all the time) that's because it keeps changing in
non-compatible ways. I know I've always have had loads of trouble getting it
all to compile everytime I tried to look at it. Directory does have a
problem there.

Oh, and the second bit I'll mention is that it seems no-one ever pays
attention to the builds for their project unless they get e-mail, so
there'll probably be a 'hump' to get over once you get back to sending
yourself e-mail :-)

There's a few example of bigger maven-based builds (for example I know about
Excalibur) that tend to build fine.

Mind you -- that's still going to be a while.
