Subject: Tracking Org-mode's git repo
Date: Wed, 29 Jul 2009 11:05:03 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <873a8f5074.fsf@kassiopeya.MSHEIMNETZ> (raw)

Hi all,

I sat down to hack a little on our functions we wrote to compile
Org-mode without make (see
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/15264 ff).

I thought it would be nice, to do the whole bunch of actions at once for
users tracking the development version of Org-mode:

   * git
     - clone the repo
     - pull

   * Download and unpack org-latest.tar.gz in case no git is installed
     or the user doesn't want to use git to track Org.

Git cloning and pulling is now done as recommended in our FAQ
which is based on Bernt's suggestions, I believe. Optionally, the whole
thing sets up a local branch for you, that is rebased automatically
(again, see the FAQ entry for more no this).

What's still missing, is a function to download and unpack
org-latest.tar.gz, which I will do during the next days. We should add
that feature for people not willing/being able to install git.

I've set up a repo on github for this.

If you want to contribute, you could (a) clone/fork the repo, (b) send
me your public key that you wish to use with that repo so I can add it,
or (c) just send patches.

Best regards,
