Subject [Subversion Wiki] Update of "walkthroughDirectory" by GabrielaGibson
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2013 19:44:44 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Subversion Wiki" for change notification.

The "walkthroughDirectory" page has been changed by GabrielaGibson:

- SVN Walk-through Directory
+ = SVN Walk-through Directory -- UNIX =
+ Here you find simple walkthroughs for all things SVN on Unix.  There are also [[walkthroughDirectoryWindows|Windows]]
and [[walkthroughMac|Mac]] walkthrough directories.
- [[Concept|walkthroughDirectoryConcept]]
+ === Programmming environments ===
+  . [[walkthroughUnixC|C]], [[walkthroughUnixC++|C++]], [[walkthroughUnixJava|java]], [[walkthroughUnixML|ML]],[[walkthroughUnixOctave|Octave]]
- [[Walkthrough Directory Project Page| walkthroughDirectoryProjectPage]]
+ === Documenting envinronments: ===
+  . [[walkthroughUnixWebsite|Websites]], [[walkthroughUnixManuals|Manuals]],
+  . (what else?)
- ----------
- A directory of walkthroughs by user goals:
- The quality benchmark of usefulness is that the admin can phone in sick and get the apprentice(or
the PHB) to fix whatever problem occurs with minimal phone support, using those walkthroughs.
+ === Office environments: ===
+  . [[walkthroughUnixAccounting|Accounting]],(spreadsheets?) [[walkthroughUnixFormletters|Formletters]],
- The other goal is to set people of every kind of skill level up as quickly as possible and
to make it easy to get started and start being productive, without requiring them to read
too much or learn things they do not need to know.  If we can get the initial time investment
down to 60 minutes or less, that would be great.
+  . (why does (say) gnumeric not have an SVN dialog plugin?)
- The walkthroughs are categorised by OS, windows users do not need to know unix cmds and
vice versa; then split those into useage categories -- someone who maintains a website will
have different needs than a software house, or someone who is using svn as an audit trail
or backup device.
+ === Creative collaborative environments: ===
+  . [[walkthroughUnixBook|Writing/editing a book]], [[walkthroughUnixPaper|writing/editing
a scientific paper]]
- Sub categories and their individual templates:
+ === Class room uses: ===
+  . [[walkthroughUnixAudittrail|audittrail]] facilitate groupwork and produce an audit trail
- a) programmming environment:
+ === Other uses: ===
-  . Is listing by languages/mixed env useful here?
-   . ie, does a (say) C shop have different needs to a place that uses ML
- b) documenting envinronments:
-  . websites Manuals (what else?)
- c) office environments:
-  . accounting (spreadsheets) forms/ boilerplate letter repository (why does (say) gnumeric
not have an SVN dialog plugin?)
- d) creative collaborative environments:
-  . writing/editing a book writing/editing a scientific paper
- e) class room uses:
-  . audit trail for group work, so you can see which student contributed what.
- e) Other uses that currently elude me.
- It's easy to add new categories and we can probably rope users into writing the walkthroughs
for us, with only minimal editing on our part.  I know people keep a plethora of differnt
walkthroughs on their web pages, but it's best to strive for 'information supremacy'(a not
quite monopoly I mean) here, since we're 'the horses mouth' (so to speak), we should be the
first address and also, in a way it is part of the marketing that convinces people to use
svn who until now had not considered that it would be useful to them.
- Aside questions:
- How about offering a script to make a typical svn directory that is useful for their application?
 If they will take our advice about the trunk set up, why not save their time with a script?
 It also neatly serves to standardise svn usage.
- Also offer poster type print out of the following for pinning on the wall (plus of course,
the website page):
- General Walkthrough template:
- ----------
- OS used:
- Application of walkthrough(short desc):
- general description of typical workflow for users' particular application(long desc):
- downloading/installing:
- creating a repository:
- your first commit:
- your first checkout:
- subsequent commmits:
- subsequent checkouts:
- Now you're done with the set-up, here are the most frequently used commands:
- reverting your work:
- making a patch:
- applying a patch:
- removing a patch:
- using a patch to communicate about code:
- looking at a snapshot from date x.y.z:
- copying out a snapshot from date x.y.z:
- Seeking and finding things:
-  . (example scenario: can't remember when, but recalls quirky unique typo that could be
search for.)
- seeing the list of changes:
- by time, by user, by section
- seeing who changed/created what:
