JT and I talked at length about the work he's now doing renaming everything tagged with "ISE" that now needs to be LEMDO; and we devised a cunning plan for editor projects:
- When an editor is getting started we first send them out an Ant build file which they open in Oxygen to set up their project.
- When it runs, that file creates directory, checks out the svn repo, and then runs a second ant task that does this:
- svn update to get any changes to core files
- svn export to get local copies of schemas (avoids externals)
- That ant file is the one you open and press the red triangle before you start work.
- Another ant file is the after-work version, which does svn update and svn commit.
So: no need for svn externals; no problem if connectivity is temporarily down; no need to learn svn; everything happens in Oxygen.
