Subject: zmailer on anonymous-CVS From: firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com Date: Thu, 26 Feb 1998 16:06:06 +0200 (GMT)Hello,
I am creating an anonymous CVS repository for the ZMailer.
(easiest approach out of many possibilities, I think..)
You can initialize the synced repository with commands:
(I leave it to you to recognize prompts ;) )
$ cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot login Password: cvs $ cd /your/source/tree $ cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot checkout zmailerand then update it against my tree every now and then with commands:
$ cd /your/source/tree/zmailer $ cvs update -dAPThis requires CVS of version 1.8 or newer -- current (2003-Apr-3) is 1.11.2.
/Matti Aarnio <firstname.lastname@example.org>
There exists also another r/o installation of the CVS repository courtesy of Eugene Crosser:
$ cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot login Password: cvs $ cd /your/source/tree $ cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot checkout zmailer
The server is in Australia (2003-April-3), and the tree is synced daily around 2 AM GMT!
Access thru command like:
rsync -avz anoncvs.zmailer.org::<Module> your/local/path rsync -avz anoncvs.zmailer.org::<Module>/path/under your/local/path
The modules available are:
Module Content ====================================================================== ZCVS The entire CVS repository (CVSROOT in fact) where the ZMailer lives in.
You may also consider adding ``-z'' option; these files are compressible...
At vger.kernel.org I have scripted following commandline as ZCVS-rsync:
#!/bin/sh rsync -rlztpv --delete anoncvs.zmailer.org::ZCVS/ /home/mea/ZCVS \ | egrep -v '/$'
Some people don't seem to know the difference in between 'Anonymous-CVS' and 'Anonymous-r/o-rsync of repository'.
The main difference is that in rsync case, you get the repository into your local system, instead of updating against it over the network.
$ cd /your/source/tree $ cvs -d /your/local/ZCVS-copy-path checkout zmailerand then latter at first update the repository with rsync every now and then, and then update your work copy:
$ ZCVS-rsync $ cd /your/source/tree/zmailer $ cvs update -dAP
Summaries of log-messages given to cvs commit at my source repository are emailed to address <email@example.com>
You can subscribe to that list with this type of letter:
$ Mail firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: (irrelevant) subscribe zmailer-update
The "mailto-URL" above should generate proper email in case where your web browser, and email client, are sufficiently integrated, and properly configured.
It being Majordomo, you must have consistent headers, or it barfs at you, and very likely refuses to work.
