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 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

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, 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!
