Subject Re: [NOTICE] xml-site CVS repository to be migrated to SVN
Date Thu, 13 Oct 2005 08:31:18 GMT
Two reasons:
- One step less for publishing the site. Because the whole process is so
complicated and annoying people tend not to do anything. That's bad.
- I don't like storing generated files in version control. It makes no
sense IMO.

I agree that reverting changes may be a little bit more difficult, but
with ForrestBot regenerating the site is a no-brainer. No hard feelings
if we go back to committing the generated site to SVN but I don't like
it.
