Re: Typo current nightlies


#1

Hello!

First actual e-mail response to a mailing list, ever, fingers crossed.

The proxy issue was my main purpose for doing this, couldn’t get
access to it from work - and suspect many people are in the same
situation. Additionally downloading, reading up on and operating a SVN
client seems a little much overhead for trying out the current trunk.

My motives are to provide the tarballed sources, but I can understand
how the ads made it look - I have now removed them.

Cheers

I haven’t the url of the source here, I only subscribed to the list a
few days ago.

Do you provide sources from svn co (with .svn files) or svn export ?

Most apps provide nightly builds for testers, and I believe it’s a good
thing. It opens the testing process to much more people so we’ll have
bugs detected faster.

Never said that did I? Put your capitals back in their box.

I thought your main purpose was because your host didn’t support
subversion?

Some svn clients are exactly like FTP clients. Are you mistaking
them with the command line client - which is tricky for beginners
to grasp? Do you understand that I didn’t see the point because even
though a host doesn’t support svn … you can still use svn on your
own machine? It’s much easier to use because instead of having to
grab the whole source every time you only grab the changed files.
You can easily get six changesets at a weekend.

Maybe I should have made it clearer that I didn’t see the need for an
automated script if you’re host doesn’t support svn, because you
don’t need your host to support svn.

I don’t quite get the proxy thing. I wouldn’t have thought
typosphere was a regularly blocked site and if people are at work
then they’re work … not playing with typo code.

Er and just for the record that doesn’t mean I hate proxies :wink:

To be honest if you’re providing a service that could suck down
bandwidth I wouldn’t blame you for putting ads up there. That’s not
a click farm … that’s an ad supported service.

Hi Gary,

Correct in that my host does not support SVN, but I also cannot access
the SVN repos for typo from work through our proxy (don’t work 100% of
the time I’m in work). I would envisage people not constantly updating
their typo instances with new tarballs, but setting up a new typo
installation based on current (offers a lot more features than stable,
as you’re probably well aware).

It took minimal effort on my part, and it may be of use to someone
which is all I want - extracting a tarball is easier than downloading
an SVN client etc etc.

Cheers.

True … lot’s of excitement as well :slight_smile: Probably not a good idea to
run with a live site unless you want real fun and excitement though.
Although r1053 is looking stable(ish) but trunk potentially breaks a
lot of themes unless they’ve been updated.

Good man, but I wouldn’t worry if you wanted to put the ads back
up. May as well see if you can make a few pennies for the bandwidth
for the work you did put in. It’s certainly not a click farm.

I can mirror here too, if needed. I have unlimited bandwidth in the
limits of my 10mb line in a datacenter in France and I hardly use 10
gigabytes a day.

Thanks Frederic - appreciate it!

At the moment it’s not issue as I think 1 or 2 of the files have been
downloaded and i have a 400 Gb/mo package. I think running the SVN
export instead of update will trim the size down a touch, too!

You said, “There’s not really a need for an automated script.” (exact
quote). If you weren’t intending to speak for everybody, you probably
should have qualified your statement: “I don’t see a need for an
automated script.” There’s a pretty big difference between those two
statements y’know?

I think the issue is some (stupid/broken) proxies that don’t allow
the extra HTTP methods that webDAV (and therefore SVN)
connections use.

Sorry my fault, I thought it was taken as read that I don’t speak for
everybody - but only for me. How about this for a disclaimer that I
attach to my posts?

[Let it be known that this is my own opinion. I don’t speak for
anybody. I only speak for myself]

Would that help you out?

This is getting stupid…

Nightly builds are always useful for a testing purpose.

I’m thinking about setting up an automated testing environment for
users that’s to say people who are not aware of what a database and a
webserver are but are supposed to use Typo because it’s designed for
them.

Many software have testing teams, and a test related mailing list as
well to discuss about what is a bug and what is not. I know Typo is not
as widely used as some other software, but I was surprised not to find
one when I started to play with typo.

Gary: no problem at all for me as soon as this list is used both for
discussing Typo matter AND bug reporting and isn’t too busy.

Depends on how much trafic there is on the list actually. So my
apologies for my not-so-bad-but-not-accurate-at-this-time idea

Jayzuz don’t apologise or somebody might blame me for putting you
off! :wink:

It was only yesterday that bug chat was going on. A problem with
posting from an external app that meant the posts weren’t being
displayed (Ticket #872) but Piers has solved that in r1054 which is
pretty stable(ish) … which is always good to know if anybody is
thinking of a trunk jump.

So a list just for bug and testing discussion? Is that not just
cutting a function of this list? Which isn’t normally as busy…

There’s the Typo forums as well of course.

Now for the love of all that’s holy that’s not me slamming your idea
here Frédéric :wink: But if I normally find a bug I’ll post it here, and
to just make it loud and plainly clear to anyone else I am not
saying not to go ahead and do it … maybe the point will get across

Maybe you could add “beating the life out of the Typo community since
2006”
to your signature Gary? :slight_smile:

C’mon now Steve, what was the point of that? I’ve been on the list
for about a year now. Try not to be so sensitive and delicate eh?
