Subject RE: Update on SVN dump load
Date Fri, 26 Aug 2011 03:23:31 GMT
Thanks joe,

I already had a laborious additional SVN update stage running when I saw this message.  So
about 18 hours total into this, when it interrupted once again, I started a new folder, this
time on my local hard drive (I had been updating onto a shared folder of a file server), and
did a complete check-out in 30 minutes, 30 seconds.

I can now drag that baby over to the file server where I want to keep it.  Quickly.

Based on this, when the merge into the incubator/ooo/ SVN subtree happens, I think I will
nuke the tree I have and do a complete check-out the same way.

 - Dennis

Yes that is a painful way to proceed.  9 times out of 10
it is way faster to nuke a partial checkout and retry than
it is to use svn update to pick up where you left off.

I learned this while dealing with network issues during a
FreeBSD checkout.  Wasted a full day waiting on svn up.

	I am clearly doing this wrong.  There must be a more-efficient way to handle this than by
an SVN check-out and, after the check-out is interrupted for some reason, subsequent SVN updates
to continue pulling down a working copy of the repo, rinse-repeat whenever there are connection
failures of some kind.  
	I say that because I am around 12 hours into that process and I am still pulling just the
trunk (at about 1.5 GB including all of the .svn stuff).
	Fortunately, it doesn't swamp my machine and I can do other work, such as write emails [;<).
 Don't think I'll try watching Netflix on-line though [;<).

	PS: I have, since June 1, had a lifetimes supply of ways to show myself how stupid I am.
 Walking onto a project of this magnitude without first learning the toolcraft and customs
on something smaller is not thrilling.  I am going to find those smaller things to teeth on
while I watch in horror how complex this activity is.

	Ah, the excitement builds ...
	One way to not do commits (and to avoid certificate warnings) is to use the http:// address,
not the https:// form.

	Our JIRA issue has been updated:
	Joe has done a test load onto:
	No commits to it, please, but yell out if you see anything wrong.  It
	looks good so far.
