The $Id$ keyword came up while talking with Angel and I realized
svn:keywords property doesn't get set on PKGBUILD for new packages,
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
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
the repo. As for option #2, it has already been done.
Unless I'm missing something, it has only been done once, on
Packages added after that point do not have the svn:keywords property
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.
I was going to suggest this too. I don't recall the syntax, though, but we should be able to match PKGBUILD files and set autoprops for that.
It's so lame that svn doesn't let you set properties like this at the directory level...
