GNU Arch Support

Item posted by Michael J. Flickinger <mjflick> on Wed 10 Aug 2005 06:52:35 PM UTC.

Soon Savannah will support GNU Arch via sftp.

We are currently in the process of testing and fine tuning this
service. Hopefully, it will be ready within a week.


Any updates? (posted by Paul D. Smith, Sat 05 Nov 2005 03:12:43 PM UTC)


Generic http repository support (posted by Pavel Roskin, Tue 04 Oct 2005 08:08:54 PM UTC)

What if you simply provide an area that can be accessed over http read-only and over sftp or scp read-write? That would allow arch, git, mercurial and probably some other version control systems.
I'm afraid arch a poor choice as the only supported distributed version control system. It's essentially abandoned by everybody including its author Tom Lord.

We're indeed far behind this 'deadline' :)

Arch induced a discussion about seting up a more maintainable Savannah setup. It also revealed some odd issues that comes with people being member of more than 32 groups. The best way to follow the development of Savannah is to read

Why not cogito? Probably in the future. We're concerned, btw, that SCM hosted at Savannah provide a way to sign commits, and that people should not be given total control over the source repository (so nobody can delete its history). Afaics cogito only works on top of 'full-control' write acces doesn't it? Or is a client-server protocol developed?

cogito is also in development. With CVS, we can stick to Debian stable's version and stop worrying about it. With cogito, we'd have to follow closely the development, which requires TIME :/

Updates? (posted by Paul D. Smith, Mon 29 Aug 2005 05:03:34 PM UTC)

Any updates on this? It's been almost three weeks. I know everyone is busy. I'd really, really like to have this (I don't care arch vs. git/cogito; whatever as long as it's a more modern, changeset-style tool with full element rename/remove support).

Is there a migration plan for existing project? Can we test it out with a sample conversion of the CVS archive before we decide if we want to go "for real"?

Is there someplace else (a mailing list or something) I should be following/reading/asking/helping if I'm interested in this?

What about support for git / cogito?
