Subject Re: Updating Site with SVN
Date Mon, 17 Apr 2006 08:30:05 GMT
A few months ago, I've set up a publish.xml [1] for the XML site (for
ForrestBot) which deploys the XML site using SCP. That means the
generated site isn't committed to SVN anymore. I personally dislike
putting generated content under version control but infrastructure
prefers having the generated site in SVN in case they have to restore it
after a failure. On the other side, we've tried the SVN approach in XML
Graphics with the result that we have major line-ending problems when
the site is generated on Windows. SVN complains a lot about mixed line
endings in Forrest-generated files and the diffs get rather big.

I don't know how best to resolve this. The best thing would probably be
a ForrestBot installation on ASF hardware like we had it before. I don't
know what the plans of the Forrest people are. Anyway, I keep pushing
this before me because I wanted to concentrate on "more important"
things. If anyone has a good proposal on how to deal with this, I'm all
