• Do not register here on develop.twiki.org, login with your twiki.org account.
• Use View topic Item7848 for generic doc work for TWiki-6.1.1. Use View topic Item7851 for doc work on extensions that are not part of a release. More... Close
• Anything you create or change in standard webs (Main, TWiki, Sandbox etc) will be automatically reverted on every SVN update.
Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

Whatever convention is agreed for naming releases (http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/TWikiReleaseNamingConvention), we have to automate it somehow.

The build process currently names all releases "TWiki" i.,e. does not differentiate packages. The proposed automation is:

  • build.pl prompts for a release name
  • sed TWiki.pm to insert the release name in $RELEASE, and svn ci it (Item000:) to ensure correct repository labelling ($RELEASE is currently 'Dakar')
  • derive a TWiki topic name from the release name using an RE e.g.
$release =~ s/^(TWiki)?(\d+)\.(\d+)\.(\d+)$/TWikiR$1_$2_$3/ or die "Invalid release name $release";
  • Use the release name as the name for the zip and topic


All done except RE, which is not strictly necessary. All we need now is agreement on the release naming scheme.
