CVS tarbals generated daily

Item posted by Loïc Dachary <loic> on Sun 11 Mar 2001 09:01:39 PM UTC.

From now on, a tarbal of the CVS repository of each project is generated daily.

This is not to be confused with a CVS snapshot that is the result of a tar -zcf on the checkout of a repository. The daily tarbal generated contains the CVS repository and allows any project administrator to backup the full information related to a CVS repository on his machine, or move the repository to another machine without asking anything. The tarbal is available from the Project Admin menu entry.

In order to reduce resource consumption, the tarbal is only generated if at least one file in the CVS repository is more recent than the tarbal.
