POL core now on GitHub

Post by Nando » Mon Sep 08, 2014 11:51 am

Dear all,

We moved the repository to GitHub (it allows better interaction and git is cooler). The latest (and probably unstable) version is now found in:

https://github.com/polserver/polserver

There's a small guide there on how to compile for Windows / Linux. You can get the files using either git or svn (GitHub accepts both).

You can create "Issues", so we don't depend only on the boards for bugs. You can also contribute code by doing "Pull Requests".

;)

Thanks for the update Nando. If possible could you add the rev number? 832? :)

Git doesn't really have a rev number, but a commit hash. The latest one is: "2d2863166bbd4e4bf4f727f70a2d0f288fb2dc5d". You can shorten it to "2d2863166b", for example. ;)

More information here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4120 ... ion-number

(or do you mean something else?)

Hi Nando, maybe a silly question, but knowing absolutely nothing about git :)

So I can still use my favorite subversion client to check out sources? What about revisions? I will still see an history with what has been fixed?

No, subversion client would not work with GIT.
Better google for more info about git.
I found git better then svn.

Yes, you will still see a history about all changes, but it has another version numbering

While subversion doesn't directly work with git, GitHub keeps a subversion bridge:

I haven't tried using a svn client to access the repository on GitHub, but it should work. Anyway, using git is preferable.

We migrated the entire history to Github. So, you will see the full history, if you access the source via git now.
Former commits of the most active authors are also linked inside the Github system. The current Github statistics begin in August 2009: https://github.com/polserver/polserver/ ... ntributors

Issues/bugs/problems can be reported here: https://github.com/polserver/polserver/issues

Maybe the wiki will get more content in the near future: https://github.com/polserver/polserver/wiki
Do you have ideas for some FAQs?

We hope you like this step and keep on contributing to the project!
Thanks.

Turley introduced me to the team in this way:
"I added Chaos as developer. He is an old friend of mine and our shard admin (http://www.welt-pergon.de). First of all he does the git migration and he is an experienced c++ developer and hopefully he has the time and notions for our codebase ;)"

So..."Hi!" :-)

Greetings Chaos. It's good to see some new people in the development team.

*sighs*

I guess I'll have to install the GIT software again.
I suppose moving to GIT was inevitable. After all it is the (relatively) new kid in town.
I'm going to miss my Tortoise. He's been a faithful servant. : )

Will the "Distro" repo be moved to GIT as well?
Sincerely,
Yukiko

I would tell you a UDP joke but you might not get it.
