Subject Re: [NOTICE] xml-site CVS repository to be migrated to SVN
Date Thu, 13 Oct 2005 09:45:25 GMT
After republishing the site again after the latest changes, I see why my
approach may not be the best. mirrors.cgi on Windows has CRLF
line-endings and is copied as such to minotaur. Furthermore, no
executable permission is set. This could be avoided by setting different
properties on mirrors.cgi in SVN and adjusting the post-process script
in publish.xml but both problems are easily solveable with SVN. Sigh.
