For security reasons write access to jjrepo is only available for John. It's basically my private repository. If you'd like to hack on projects where you do have checkin permissions on the Subversion repository, along with infrastructure for running your code, then why not head over to ProgClub and register?

Configuring a development environment

TODO: add notes about how to configure a development environment.

Releasing a stable version

Releases of {project name} can only be done by John. To do a release run the jjrepo-release script from either empathy or orac. E.g.:

jj5@orac:~$ jjrepo-release {project name}

If you've noticed that there is code in trunk that hasn't been released into tags/latest and you'd like John to do a release for you then feel free to drop him a line.

Release notes

Release notes are (supposed to be) added after notable releases are made. New release notes are added to the bottom of the release notes section and have a level 3 title based on the release date.



Things to do, in rough order of priority:

  • Create the project in svn.


Stuff that's done. Latest stuff goes on the bottom of the list.


  • JE: Create project page.
