Subject RE: Update on SVN dump load
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2011 18:03:26 GMT
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.
