So, uh, yeah. Now that it's April 2 and I clearly didn't quit,
there's a new version of ABS in git that uses rsync to do its
business. It's heavily based off Eliott's work, and tested decently
thoroughly, so I think it's good to go. Thanks Eliott!
Basically, it expects the ABS tree to be stored on the server in the format:
Where RSYNC_ROOT is wherever the rsync stanza points to (currently
/srv/abs), ARCH is i686 or x86_64, and REPO is the repo. Anything in
that tree will be synch'd for that repo.
I've currently got some static checkouts sitting in /srv/abs for each
repo that can probably just be updated (except for testing) on a
fairly-frequent basis with "cvs update" thanks to sticky-tags, and can
change to whatever svn method we need when we change to svn.
I wasn't sure how to get multiple repos checked out into the same dir
for testing, and didn't spend a lot of time looking at it since we're
switching to svn anyway.
Anyway, yeah. New ABS is in git. Whee. I'll probably try to close
the one FS report I've got for makeworld and get some of the todo list
for makeworld completed before I actually tag as 2.0, though. We'll
see how much I get done.
