Publishing to rubyforge - is there a command line tool that


#1

I was trying to use the rake contrib task for publishing to Rubyforge,
but
it seems to use a command line component to do the work (which I don’t
seem
to have :slight_smile: I believe this was contributed by Florian G… Does anyone
know where I get this extra piece to make this all work?

What do people use to automate their uploads to Rubyforge? Is this
publish
task the best way? I have many files to post each time.

All suggestions are welcome.

Thanks,

Jeff

You can see what I do for PDF::Writer (and my other projects) in the
Rakefile there. I use metaproject.

Thanks Austin, that looks like that will work well and appears to have
more
functionality than the other way, including posting the news items and
sending emails. Thank you for the pointer.

fyi. i wrote and use this

http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=1024&release_id=4283

it installs a rubyforge script which can be used to automate rubyforge
uploads. i don’t know how it compares to austin’s approach but it’s
very
simple.

The main difference, as I recall, is that you have a lot of hardcoded
values in your code. Metaproject may have those hardcoded values as
well, but they are well hidden from me, the user.

Florian G. has also written a similar program.
