Re: Not commiting my own mainfile - Please help me !!!

I have only worked with SVN/CVS a little, so I export a copy of my sandbox to my local server for testing. When I'm happy with it, I merge the changes into my sandbox copy, then commit to the repository.


I personally cannot work like that as I usually practically test my changes after each line... So I would not export it every time.

So creating mainfile at installation can be an idea. But the permissions are an issue I think...

So the best thing is probably to accept that our mainfile on the SVN will get changed from time to time, but we can live with it. We can always revert the changes, it's no big deal...

That kind of approach is rather commonplace among my systems and the directory would have to be writable anyways in order to write to cache and templates_c.

Not including mainfile.php and generating it during install sounds pretty logical.

Re: Not commiting my own mainfile - Please help me !!!

Maybe Steve's method is the only way of doing it. That's my method too. It also solves the issue of temporary changes for testing and debugging.

I'm just being paranoid. More than anything, I'm too lazy to learn yet another chat system.

Well Jmorris, I can tell you this, it's more safer to close your port 80 and just stick to the irc protocol^^



Re: Plugable Ad Mangement

Excellent James,

Try to bring him to work with us to include this in ImpressCMS.

Plugable Ad Mangement

I know this is a bit premature, but I'll mention it anyways because I'm currently working on it.

I'm working with the developer of http://www.oiopublisher.com/ on squashing any bugs and improving the XHTML rendering of the system. It's a very promising ad management system that supports the following ad formats:

* Banners/Buttons
* Global/Per Post Text Links
* Paid Posts
* Custom Ad Services
* Modular backend with "Conversation" module
* Google compliant with a nofollow option

Simon (the Dev) is very much interested in opening the development and extending the application to other platforms. He has some excellent concepts lined up for the application and I think it would be an ideal candidate to replace the outdated banner manager in the core as a "modular" replacement.

I'll have more information on this soon. For now, we're working on the latest release which will include a "conversation" module for social blogging.

Re: Ohloh: the open source network

Will add as soon as I appear



Ohloh: the open source network

I believe ohloh.net is an important (and very cool ) site about open source. It provides many information about open source project. I have already created a project for ImpressCMS and have enabled it to analyze our SVN so it will gatter som statistics about commits, code, contrib utor, etc...

I would really appreciate if everyone of you could :

- Create an account on http://www.ohloh.net/
- Configure your geo-location in your profile
- Add ImpressCMS to your stack
- When you will have committed on our SVN, wait a day or 2 and then go the list of ImpressCMS Contributors and as soon as you see your SourceForge username, please click on it and click on the button "This is me" so Ohloh can associate your Ohloh user account with your SF username.

One of the thing that was never really done in the last years for XOOPS was proper promotion of our product. We need to promote it everywhere we can. Ohloh is one of those place.

Thanks !

Re: Things I'd like to remove from the trunk

Can you remove the extras folder that had GiJoes code in as well?

Unless we want to put the old xoops one in for any reason?

Re: Not commiting my own mainfile - Please help me !!!

The problem with mainfile.php is that is is a file that NEED to be versionned. It's easy to ignore file that ARE NOT versionned. But it is not the case with mainfile.php.

If I follow the previous comment, then I would need to do an SVN REMOVE on mainfile.php so then I could add it to ignore list. But then the mainfile.php would no more be present on the SVN. So this is not working.

The only thing I see is to always remember to uncheck that file for commit when we are doing an SVN commit at the root of the project....

Or am I missing something ?
