PowerPhlogger CVS access

Yep! From now on you'll be able to checkout my current CVS.

 NEW: Web CVS Tree   
you're able to browse my web CVS tree with Chora:
PowerPhlogger web CVS tree

 

 What is CVS?   
CVS is the Concurent Version System and is a very popular mean of version control for software projects. It is designed to allow multiple authors to be able to simultanously operate on the same source tree. This source tree is centrally maintained, but each developer has a local mirror of this repository that they make their changes to.

 

 CVS Command Summary   
Here is a summary of CVS commands. See the CVS Home Page for detailed information and documentation about CVS.

Action Result
co Checkout a module to get a working copy of it.
add Add a new file or directory to the repository.
get Make a working directory of source files for editing. 
commit Apply changes to the source repository (write access) 
diff Show differences between local files and the source repository.
history Show reports on cvs commands against the source repository.
log Display CVS log information.
rdiff Prepare a collection of differences reflecting changes between release.
status Show current status of files in the repository and local copies.
update Bring your working directory up to date with the repository.

 

 Using Anonymous CVS   
The source tree for PowerPhlogger is stored on cvs.phpee.com. To access the tree you need to first set up your CVSROOT enviroment variable so that cvs knows where to go to grab the source from. The proper value for CVSROOT is:
    :pserver:anonymous@cvs.phpee.com:/repository
For example, in tcsh do:
    setenv CVSROOT :pserver:anonymous@cvs.phpee.com:/repository
In a bourne shell descendant (e.g. bash) the following syntax has to be used
    export CVSROOT=':pserver:anonymous@cvs.phpee.com:/repository'
Or whatever the approriate syntax for your shell of choice is.

Alternatively, you can specify the cvs root directly on the command line:

    cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.phpee.com:/repository
Next, the first time the source tree is checked out, a cvs login is needed.
    cvs login
This will ask you for a password. The password is anonymous. Enter it and press a carriage return.

To get the tree and place it in a sub-directory of your current working directory, issue the command:

    cvs co -P pphlogger
Or to save bandwidth get the compressed version, type:
    cvs -z3 co -P pphlogger
To update the sources within a checked out directory execute
    cvs update -P -d
and only the files which have changed will be updated.

The current available modules relating to PowerPhlogger are:

pphlogger


The anoncvs tree is only updated once a day or so, so constantly updating is useless and only puts unneeded load on the already overloaded cvs server. Also, please do not use compression levels over -z3, the amount of bandwidth it saves is minimal while putting a much larger load on the cvs server.
