Github SVN synchronisation broken ?
« on: July 13, 2013, 07:54:10 AM »
On Github the latest version is 6578 (dated july 6th), svn update goes to version 6588.

Is the sync between the two still active ?

I think, ansgar needs to update his git mirror to include the new committer kierongreen.

Yes, git-svn complains with "Author: kierongreen not defined in .git/svn-authors file".

LS,

Latest commit on aburch/simutrans is from sept 20 2014.
Latest on svn is from prissi on 8-10-2014 with several revisions in between.

Can the github sync be checked ?

Yes, there's a new commiter that Git does not know about:

    Author: An_dz not defined in .git/svn-authors file

If you give me a "Name <email@address>" for An_dz, I'll add him to the file and the sync should work again. It's possible to use something like "Knightly <knightly@invalid>" if one doesn't want to make the real name or email address public.

It looks like the git-svn command accepts an argument --authors-prog=<program>, where the program might be something like echo "$1 <$1@invalid>". That flag would cause the failure mode for new authors to be "author has an invalid address" instead of "git sync silently stops working".

That or turn on emailing of cron failures ;-) (or some other means of getting alerted). Just a thought.

The base.tab is missing in the repository on GitHub.

This file lists all the texts in the program code that need a translation.

If a text is added or changed, it should also be entered there.

I believe I've just triggered this again. My details can be found in Extended commits.

I think this is still an issue (either that, or I've failed to interact with the svn correctly).

As you can see, there is no one around to maintain the github. Ansgar had looked at it very sporadically. Maybe you can sent him a message from github?

Github has no means of sending private messages; as far as I can tell the only options of notifying him through Github would be through a dummy pull request, or by mentioning him in a comment somewhere on Github. There's also the option of trying one of the email addresses I can find for him in other roles. (I haven't tried any of these yet.)

I'm wondering whether it would be worth setting up a Github 'organisation' for Simutrans, so that we're not dependant upon a former contributor for the ongoing maintenance of the git mirror (which, while unofficial, is nonetheless firmly embedded in the development of Simutrans Extended).

I think it would make much more sense to set up git (with gitsvn) on my server. But then I really avoided learning about git, since on the commandline it is really uncomfortable compared to svn (of course there are tools lit gitless etc.) So I have no clue how to set up a gitsvn server.
