Hi all,

Anybody has a clue on how to install a plugin behind a corporate
firewall? I
know the "-p" option works for installing a ruby gem thru a proxy, but
doesn't seem to work for script/plugin install

Hi Eric.

script/plugin is just wrapper for 'svn' function. You should check that
works for you in this case.


If not then check "$HOME\Application Data\Subversion\servers" file (for
windows) and configure proxy settings for subversion.
But if it would not work after that you could try to use https// instead
http:// protocol. In some cases it helps.

My works firewall blocks svn (dav methods).  Is there any way to install
plugins by http?  I know the code checks for svn and should download by
if subversion is not installed but I have it installed for intranet
which isn't blocked by the proxy.  How can I say I want to use http

I tried to do plugins a while back but ran into problems because of not
having svn. From
my limited examination/understanding of the code in plugin.rb it looked
like it's supposed
to gracefully handle NOT having svn... but that certainly doesn't seem
to work.

Can anyone answer this once and for all? Is svn a absolute requirement
for using plugins?
And if so, why? (since one of the beauties of subversion is it's easy to
get going over
