I think it's more safe to have builds based on tags, that way build can be reproduced at any time. If you build first, then tag, there is a good chance that you'll forget to tag, tag it with the wrong tag name etc. Additionally, if you don't get the fresh copy of the files you may forget to check some in - so the distro source code will not build - happens all the time with the cvshome.org distribution. So, tagging before you make a build, and then building the source that is exported using that tag is the only safe way, regardless whether the build is automated or not. >I've never got around to sorting out automatic build numbers... IMHO automatic increase of the version for the build has a high "cool" factor, but doesn't really help much with anything ;) Best Regards, Jerzy ----- Original Message ----- From: "Tony Hoyle" <tmh at nodomain.org> Newsgroups: support.cvsnt To: <cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook> Sent: Friday, December 06, 2002 4:48 AM Subject: Re: [cvsnt] Re: Latest updates > Torsten Martinsen wrote: > > > > Or use an automated build script that increments the version number, > > compiles and links the executables, updates the change log, builds the > > installer, tags the sources, and optionally uploads the installer to > > e.g. SourceForge. > > > There's already 3 machines involved in the build process (1 NT and 2 Linux). > Each is automated, but I've never got around to sorting out automatic build > numbers...
