How to put files in SVN first time

Post by darb » Tue May 12, 2009 6:31 am

Hi Ian

I tried to browse and check out some files from GSOC 2008 http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/gsoc2008/scmsvn/ Using Toutoise svn client.

I got an xml error. I think many would like to try those good contributions from GSOC but its difficult to check them out.

Why not put them into the JED when ready or in beta phases? Making them have more attention for all.

Bcs many students leave their contribution now and we all forget about it and maybe there is som 3 pds that would take on their good work making this a good contribution for Joomla community.
Success in the long run Its not about the code its about the people and community that's make it!

GSOC 2007,2008 SVN checkout not work...?

Post by darb » Tue May 12, 2009 6:51 am

Hi

I see that the checkout of GSOC 2008 not working for testing these contributions.

And there is no files to download for the GSOC projects. "No Packages Were Found" http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/gsoc2008/scmsvn/

The SVN checkout doesnt work for me getting an xml error.

So how is the students sharing their contributions to Joomla community if we cant download and test what they have done?

This should at least be a policy that this work should be possible to dl and package in the file download in Gforge. Or better to be shared in the JED when ready or coming up with a beta version.

This contribution could be good if shared for all of Joomla community and not hidden far away from users that could have interest in those nice Joomla addons.

What you say?

Have to check if there is a problem with checking out SVN, but it is all public (http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/gsoc2008/scmsvn/) and that one can be reached. The reason that there are no files published by default, is that a project can hack the core/proof of concept. That's the reasons there is mostly SVN access to get the code. That said, there are at least two projects that are still alive after last years GSOC (Jresearch and jforms).

Basically the joomlacode project is used during the Google Summer of Code and some time after. If a student wants to continue supporting his work, he/she normally creates an individual project on Joomlacode to continue there.

The last commit to the gsco2008 branch has been about 8 months ago.

Try checking them out at:
http://joomlacode.org/svn/gsoc2008

Students are free to put their stuff in JED, but it hasn't been a requirement. If there are any 3pds who want to take the work and build upon it I'm sure they will have no problem checking it out.

Thanks Ian! Working now.

Why dont we push this and give this link info so people can dl and test those old but certainly good work of previous students? I didnt find this link so maybe there are more out there that could find this info useful dont you think so?

Thanks again.

Thanks Tonie. Ian helped me with a link that work for checking it out now.

But shouldnt we push this so many others could dl and test those GSOC contributions too?

Maybe make a separet dl area for old and new GSOC projects in JED ?

Thanks.

You know, I've often thought that but just haven't had the time to really do much more with things beyond what is on developer.joomla.org.

We have a page on the wiki: http://docs.joomla.org/Summer_of_Code_2 ... ject_Ideas

One idea that I had was to review the completed projects and make a page at:
http://docs.joomla.org/Summer_of_Code_2 ... _Summaries

with information on where the projects are and what is happening with them.

Would you be interesting in taking that on?

Ian

Okay, let me do a rundown of the directories in there:

JCiviCRMMulti - this was managed by CiviCRM - talk to them for the code or get it from code.google.com
JCiviCRMUsability - ditto
JContactMiniWeb - you can create a package by moving contactdirectory.xml into the root and zipping it
JContentTypes - you can generate a package by running generate.sh
JContentVersioning - see http://developer.joomla.org/gsoc2008/ve ... ntrol.html for download
JForms - see http://developer.joomla.org/gsoc2008/forms.html for download
JMediaManager - http://developer.joomla.org/gsoc2008/ad ... nager.html
JMultiDB - is code, and not an installable project
JMultimedia - http://developer.joomla.org/gsoc2008/mu ... ortal.html
JOpenSocial - was not successful
JResearch - http://developer.joomla.org/gsoc2008/re ... ement.html
JSemantification - there is a package in the directory, also http://developer.joomla.org/gsoc2008/semantic-web.html
JTags - http://developer.joomla.org/gsoc2008/tags.html
JTaskIdea - this was not an accepted project
JTest - no idea what that is
JUnit - was not successful

Hope that helps.

Ian

The most important thing for code is support. People can download and test the projects all they want, but if the student or others are not supporting it, it's quite useless. The best time to start working on gsoc is when the student is coding. Asking questions, give them ideas, go with the flow, etc. It's a fact that not all projects can be installed, only work on a certain version of Joomla, are not finished products, etc. When gsoc is over, the real work starts. Is the student or others continuing with the code or not. If so, it's a 3rd party extension which deserves support. If not, the code is there in SVN to be used by somebody who feels inclined to do so.

I agree about that.
But would be nice also to have a requirement to make them installable after finishing the project.

Why not use the EasyCreator for Component Module Plugin Template http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... 08/details so it would be obligatory to make them also easier installable for a larger crowd of Joomla community test users?

Obligatory installable extensions are indeed very nice. It's also not always possible. The scope of some projects are more joomla core related. An example is creating a proof of concept, for example the work done two years ago to create a node-based system to publish content in. Also, the cope for some projects are bigger than for other projects so a lot is not finished when gsoc is over. This could still mean the student did very good work, and easily passes the said goals.

Right now, a lot of the projects have their own support thread in the dev forum here: http://forum.joomla.org/viewforum.php?f=231 (can't miss them really). This is a good place now to look at the ideas posted, and comment/ask questions about them. It's always nice when people are helping you with the projects.
