Subject [jira] [Commented] (JENA-160) SVN items with ":" in path/file names cannot check-out to Windows
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2011 11:08:51 GMT


Andy Seaborne commented on JENA-160:

Dennis - we used the "Import" area (I copied the style from another incubator project - sorry
I can't remember which one now - I scanned a lot of projects) as a visible tree while we pull
things out of it.  It also leaves a clear record as to what the state was at the start of
incubation and what the software grants actually apply to.

We started by extracting a minimum active set - there are a few modules that still might be
useful to people although unless someone steps and and shows some loving care and attention
nothing is likely  to happen.

I have removed the top level single-project maven structure and put a README in place (strictly,
I have tried to put a README in place.  At time of writing, I have svn committed it but it
isn't showing up in the web interface, which is kind of worrying... mutter, mutter).

What would be your advice on timing? By graduation, the "Import" area should be less visible
but we have the time from now until then.  One possibility is to use a top level "branches"
area.  Normally, I'd expect someone who was going a checkout of everything to look for a "trunk".

> For example, Import\Jena-SVN\Scratch\CJD\Jena2OWLRL\scratch\TestCase:WebOnt-AnnotationProperty-001

> I don't know if there are others.  This one blocks further check-out, update operations.
