See TWiki:Codev.SubversionBasedTWikiInstalls.

Encouraging people to run the SVN version means better testing and easier updates.

However, some updates are not appropriate for a live site. e.g. updates to Main, TWikiPreferences, etc.

The script pseudo-svnup.pl runs svn up on all files except those listed in SVN_UP_PRESERVE

It works by

  1. getting a list of all updates from 'svn up -u' (That command shows what would change, but does not change the filespace)
  2. removing from the list anything listed in the file SVN_UP_PRESERVE
  3. performing svn up on the other files.

For background see http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/IgnoringSvnCommits

Committed revision 7657.


My SVN_UP_PRESERVE file looks like:


i.e. I changed these files and I don't care if others altered them, I want to keep my versions.

I ignore the whole of data/Main. I don't care if anyone ever adds data/.htpasswd
