Capistrano and CVS


#1

I’m getting ready to deploy my first rails app and the shop I work in
prefers to use a CVS repository since its what they have been using
for years. is there a way to automate the deployment with Capistrano
in this environment?


#2

Never tried it, but I think capistrano does support CVS, since
versión1.0, check your config/deploy.rb:

=============================================================================

OPTIONAL VARIABLES

=============================================================================

set :deploy_to, “/path/to/app” # defaults to "/u/apps/

#{application}"

set :user, “flippy” # defaults to the currently logged in

user

set :scm, :cvs # defaults to :subversion

set :svn, “/path/to/svn” # defaults to searching the PATH

set :darcs, “/path/to/darcs” # defaults to searching the PATH

set :cvs, “/path/to/cvs” # defaults to searching the PATH

set :gateway, “gate.host.com” # default to no gateway

And start by uncommenting # set :scm, :cvs # defaults
to :subversion
