Title: Keeping latest stable up to date using svn
Post by: Leledumbo on October 21, 2014, 11:29:59 am
I've been using svn to keep my trunk lazarus up to date. However, I start to need both stable and trunk at the same time. So far, I download the source archive of the latest stable every time a new release appears. I'm thinking of just use svn instead, so it would save me a couple of bandwidths and I'm free from deleted files problem (if I just unpack the new archive over existing one, there's a chance that deleted files in the new source would still be there).

Now here's the problem. Looking at the tags, there's no abstract tag that always points to latest release. I'm not so advanced in svn, so I don't know if such a thing possible or not. If there are any other possibilities, feel free to tell me.

Well no but what's wrong with occasionally doing svn switch when switching from

when a new release rolls out

(say
Code: [Select]
svn switch http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/tags/lazarus_1_2_8/

Ah, svn switch. I don't know it exists. Thanks.
