The $Id$ keyword came up while talking with Angel and I realized that
svn:keywords property doesn't get set on PKGBUILD for new packages, and thus $Id$ doesn't get updated on commit. I believe we should fix this, as
information is useful when determining when a PKGBUILD was last
and by whom.
May I suggest we do the following:
- Edit the "Adding a package" section  of the packaging
in the DeveloperWiki to include this step. (Adding `svn propset
"Id" new-package/trunk/PKGBUILD' below the $EDITOR line perhaps?) 2) Add this property to all packages (this has been done once before by Aaron, if I remember correctly).
What's your view on this?
We should do #1. The Id tag should be set when a package is added to the repo. As for option #2, it has already been done.
Unless I'm missing something, it has only been done once, on 2008-04-18. Packages added after that point do not have the svn:keywords property set (e.g.: aufs2).
Yes, that's what I meant. It was done once on the whole repos when it was moved to svn. Devs and TUs who adds packages need to run the svn propset command to set the Id tag.
(Thanks for amending the developer wiki, by the way.)
What about SVN autoprops, can't you just attach a "pre-made" '~/.subversion/config' in the wiki and people can grab it from there.
That's one nifty feature. Thanks for mentioning it.
