Lynnwood Can anyone tell me if there is a way to get svn NOT to merge changes in a topic that I have edited through TWiki? or I should say not do all the funky >>>>>mine>>>> stuff. i.e. so svn does NOT merge the changes I make locally through TWiki. Every time I run update, it trashes TWikiAdminGroup
: use pseudo-svnup.pl
CDot the simplest way to resolve it is to move the files you want untouched out of the way, allow the svn update to restore them, then move them back again
(The notes at the top of the script pseudo-svnup.pl has notes in the text about that)
Lavr I am a bit confused now. There is mklinks.sh, pseudo-install.pl, pseudo-install-twiki.pl and pseudo-svnup.pl. What do I run now? and what does the others do?
CDot mklinks.sh is there just for ~develop; ignore it
pseudo-install.pl is the one you want (as per the instructions)
the others are MC's creations
CDot is trying hard not to delete them for cluttering
re: pseudo-install.pl - think of this as pseudo-install-plugins.pl then pseudo-install-twiki makes sense: you do pseudo-install-twiki to quickly configure TWiki from SVN: i.e. its writes out *.htaccess, such that then all you need to do is run
pseudo-svnup.pl is a workaround to avoid needing to suck all the twiki/twikiplugins changes when you don't care about
Do they clutter? Of course they do, but the others have as much legitimacy as pseudo-install.pl; all of them would disappear from view if they were turned into a (set of) CommandSet
.pm usable by TWikiShellContrib
We can't do this until the shell contrib gets bundled, and that won't happen until we get to Edinburgh release.
Lynnwood and thanks for addressing this little need!
MartinCleaver y, well it is security hole to allow SVN to up the TWikiAdminGroup file
MartinCleaver however, I might change the implementation in the way that CDot noted
MartinCleaver because one day you will forget and 'svn up'
MartinCleaver and that *will* merge the changes
MartinCleaver so its better to move your mods out of the way
MartinCleaver svn up
MartinCleaver and move yours back
MartinCleaver even though you don't really take svn's changes
MartinCleaver and really we ought note the changes that you don't take
MartinCleaver no time this week now
MartinCleaver crazy week
There is no specific requirement stated here. Discarding. CC
