I blame the dagger of electrocution, the goddess Elyvilon and the EV+6 ring I found early ;-)

Gitorious and third-party repository hooks

February 20th, 2011 No comments

Recently the Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup development team decided to also move the code repository away from Sourceforge.net. There had been a few complains in the past about speed and reliability but the fact that and how they disabled the ability send emails when a commit to code was done gave the final push to move away. It has been quickly decided to setup the new git repository on Gitorious.org.

Unfortunately Gitorious does not support so-called hooks, which trigger things on certain events like informing the CIA bot in ##crawl-dev or sending summary emails to the mailing-list when changes are made.

I thought it might be useful to tell of how we made the git-hooks work, even though Gitorious does not provide this feature.

New releases incoming!

October 8th, 2009 No comments

The last 2 days have been quite busy for me and someone already noted about my absence. Sorry, Fleur :-*

Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup will be releasing a minor upgrade from 0.5.1 to 0.5.2 soon. Keskitalo and me haxed together a git branch to make zips with Windows binaries of future releases cross-compiled on Debian more easy to do. Run update.sh, wait a bit, hit enter a few times… Tadaaa :) Shell scripting coupled with git haxz0ring is just awesome!

Additionally Tremulous will release a beta of 1.2 soon – after a felt decade since last release :D Seems like it will feature developer team moderated servers and this server will help providing a European point of presence. Lakitu7 and me have setup a vserver without CPU virtualization and a preliminary beta tremded.x86 is running… Let’s hope it works as expected!

Good luck to all participants for successful releases!
