I've used Vlad's latest Win32 build of darcs (darcs-latest-win32.zip) on
Win98se and have run the inittree, add & record commands. All worked
Based on Vlad's build, I think I'll also try out the tools he uses i.e. "ghc
6.2.1 for Windows, latest cygwin shell and make", rather than MinGW/MSYS.
I might begin by running both darcs & CVS.
After reading David's posting here (and being a vcs newbie!):
I'd like to see how both systems handle the following scenario:
i. At a certain point in the development of a webpage (which belongs to a
repository) there may be two different approaches to complete a certain task
eg. XSL transform a set of XML files.
ii. Dev continues based on approach A until the task is complete.
iii. Curious as to whether approach B would be better, I checkout the
revision of the webpage which existed at stage i.
iv. Dev continues using approach B in parallel until the task is complete.
v. The completed webpages based on both approaches are compared and the one
based on approach B is selected.
vi. The redundant approach A's revisions are removed from the repository
leaving a complete history of the revisions to the webpage based only on
That should help in learning to work with a vcs and on some of the
differences between darcs & CVS :)
I'm also keen to locate both system's repositories at my webhost and access
them using ssh but my current hosting plan doesn't include shell access so
I'll have to put in a request and cross fingers!
