CVS or subversion?

Ricardo Rodríguez
Hi all,

Just a newcomer trying to do things as well as possible and needing some help on this side!

I've been browsing through mail lists, MediaWiki sites and other stuff but I'm afraid that I'm still a bit lost. I'm also afraid that I am not able to follow the instructions at http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Download_from_CVS to obtain the current, or any other, release by using CVS. At the moment I'm using Windows XP as desktop operative system. Please, could you advice me about a suitable CVS client? I've download and installed several of them, but it seems to the that I'm not able to pass them the correct information to access cvs.sourceforge.net.

Please, is it possible to use a Subversion client to do that task? I've downloaded and installed TortoiseCVS and TortoiseSVN.

Thanks for your help,

Ricardo

The SVN repository isn't presently in use. Use TortoiseCVS and the
instructions on the page you linked to, plus the TortoiseCVS
documentation, to do the download.

Thanks, Rob.

I've been struggling to get Tortoise CVS working but it seems that I'm wrong at any point and I'm not able to connect to the CVS server.

As far as I understand at http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Download_from_CVS I must be able to grab, upgrade and downgrade by using anonymous as user. On the other hand, by following TortoiseCVS documentation for using it with SourceForge projects Tortoise keeps asking for a password whatever the user is. Sorry, I'm a bit confused.

Must I apply for being a developer at MediaWiki to grab the software? It sounds a bit weird to me taking into account my skills! But I'm working hard to catch up! If not, please, how can I use the anonymous user with TortoiseCVS to grab download the software?

Sorry if I'm missing any obvious point.

Thanks in advance,

Ricardo

Sorry, I'm not able to find my error.

Hitting Enter gives an error. Please, find following the log. Whatever protocol I try (ext: as per TortoiseCVS docs or pserver: as per MediaWiki docs, the login failes. Here is the entries I'm using in the Checkout window...
http://nvx.environmentalchange.net/@rrodriguez/images/TortoiseCVSconf.jpg


In C:\workplace: "C:\Archivos de programa\TortoiseCVS\cvs.exe" "-q" "checkout" "-P" "phase3"
CVSROOT=:ext:[hidden email]:/cvsroot/mediawiki

cvs checkout: warning: unrecognized response `Access denied
' from cvs server
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)

Error, CVS operation failed

Tortoise Tip:  Sometimes you get this error if you have the repository folder wrong in the Checkout dialog.  Make sure you have a slash at the start of the folder name, and that the case and path are correct.  Watch out for spurious trailing characters.

Examples are:  "/cvsroot", "/usr/local/cvs-repository", "/cvsroot/cvsgui"


Once again, sorry if I'm missing anything obvious.

Thanks,

Ricardo

Re: CVS or subversion?

You need to use password-server (pserver) authentication. Also, the
repository folder is /CVSROOT/WIKIPEDIA (not "mediawiki").

Re: CVS or subversion?

In reply to this post by Ricardo Rodríguez
Thanks Rob. It started to work with the folder name changed to low-case but the process seemed to crash and get the following messages:

-----
In C:\workplace: "C:\Archivos de programa\TortoiseCVS\cvs.exe" "-q" "checkout" "-P" "phase3"
CVSROOT=:pserver:[hidden email]:/cvsroot/wikipedia

cvs [checkout aborted]: authorization failed: server cvs.sourceforge.net rejected access to /cvsroot/wikipedia for user anonymous

Error, CVS operation failed

In : "C:\Archivos de programa\TortoiseCVS\cvs.exe" "-q" "login"
CVSROOT=:pserver:[hidden email]:/cvsroot/wikipedia

Logging in to :pserver:[hidden email]:2401:/cvsroot/wikipedia

CVSROOT=:pserver:[hidden email]:/cvsroot/wikipedia

cvs checkout: Empty password used - try 'cvs login' with a real password


Success, CVS operation completed
-----

Here the new configuration...

http://nvx.environmentalchange.net/@rrodriguez/images/TortoiseCVSconf.jpg

Extensions worked without a glitch

Could it be some kind of issue on the server side? A limitation in the number of concurrent anonymous connections? I think that if this is the case, the error message must be a bit more clear!

Just a couple of tips:

# As for pserver authentication, that is what MediaWiki site reads. But look at this from TortoiseCVS help file:

---
TortoiseCVS Client Installation Instructions
...
You will need your user name on SourceForge.net, and the project UNIX name. Fill in the dialog as follows:
Protocol: Secure Shell (:ext)
---

# As per the repository folder: my fault, it is again far clear in the MediaWiki site. The name of the project at SourceForge is Mediawiki and I've messed things up. My apologies. The name of the folder is clearly wikipedia.

Thanks for your help,

Ricardo

Re: CVS or subversion?

Rob Church
Well the final thing to be pointed out is that if SourceForge's
regular CVS access is crap (which it is), then their anonymous access
is quite frankly horrendous; it's often down or wobbling, and it lags
like there's no tomorrow.
