ATM, I am looking over the possibility to make portsnap ignore ".cvs &
.svn" either by default or through the use of some flags or some config
variable that could be set and I am looking for your input.
I am maintaining a internal revision of ports tree that I wish to use
portsnap to update for the obvious reasons. While using portsnap to update
that tree that is already under version control with Subversion, portsnap
proceeds to remove .svn and .cvs directories.
I have also tried a few tests with manipulating the REFUSE line in the
config file with no luck, just for clarity - maybe I missed something.
Does anyone see a problem with ignoring the .svn & .cvs directories by
If there is concern with that being the default would you rather see a
flag or maybe multiple flags, one for svn, cvs, etc... ?
Or would you rather see a configuration variable whether it be environment
or from the portsnap.conf ?
To make sure that I am covering it all, is there other VC directories that
you would like to see excluded while I am here ?
Suggestions for the unforeseen questions are welcome. If you see a quick
way of doing this and you are already familiar with the internals of
portsnap I would appreciate greatly any feedback as where to start or
patches for testing. At-A-Glance I have minimal knowledge of the internals
