DESCRIPTIONThe cvs-autoreleasedeb configuration file is writed in XML, because XML is easy to work with multiple-level data, but it's already in the TODO list to use a better format.
As a good XML file, this config file has the following header.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <!DOCTYPE cvs-autoreleasedeb [ <!ELEMENT sources (server)+> <!ELEMENT server (package)+> <!ATTLIST server name CDATA #REQUIRED options CDATA #REQUIRED> <!ELEMENT package (option)+> <!ATTLIST package name CDATA #REQUIRED cvsroot CDATA #REQUIRED prefix CDATA #REQUIRED tag CDATA #REQUIRED> <!ELEMENT option EMPTY> <!ATTLIST option name CDATA #REQUIRED value CDATA #REQUIRED> ]>
Which, in fact, tells the structure of the XML file. But in the case you don't know XML, this header tells that, in the sources, you have servers, which have packages, which have options. A server has the ``name'' and the ``option'' properies, a package has ``name'', ``cvsroot'', ``prefix'' and ``tag'' properties and an option has ``name'' and ``value'' property.
Before explaining how the options affects the script, you must know that in the current version, all the tags and properties MUST be lowercase (it's already on the TODO list).
This is the master section, tells what server to dupload. Actually,
the ``name'' property of the server is used as the ``--to'' parameter
to dupload. Packages are declared inside servers. Also, the ``options''
property tells aditional parameters to cvs-buildpackage for every package
in this server.
The package itself, the ``name'' property is used as the module name
for cvs checkout. The ``cvsroot'' property is passed to cvs as the
CVSROOT and the ``prefix'' is placed before the module name, used
if your package is inside some other directory than the cvs root.
Optionally, you can inform a tag to checkout the sources from.
EXAMPLEIn the case you still didn't understand the config file, follows an example:
<server name="intern"> <package name="cvs-autoreleasedeb" cvsroot=":pserver:[email protected]:/var/cvs" prefix=""> </package> <package name="someotherpackage" cvsroot=":pserver:[email protected]:/var/cvs" prefix=""> <option name="binary-source" value="1"/> </package> </server>
