Subject [all] Moving a component to dormant
Date Sun, 01 Jan 2006 19:08:21 GMT
I would appreciate it if some more svn-knowledgable folks could verify
the following sequence of steps to move a component - in this case
[feedparser] to dormant.  I want to do this with minimal noise, but
obviously no collateral damage ;-).

1. From directory above local checkouts of trunks-proper, trunks-dormant, use
svn propget svn:externals trunks-proper > externals
on these to dump current lists to text files - externals, externalsd,
resp.  Edit the text files to remove from proper and add to dormant
(really wish these could somehow be *versioned files* in svn or we
could somehow get away from having to play this).

2. Execute the following commands to effect the move and update externals:

svn move -m "Moved feedparser to dormant." \ \
svn propset -m svn:externals trunks-dormant -F externalsd
svn propset svn:externals trunks-proper -F externals
svn commit -m "Moved feedparser to dormant." -N trunks-dormant
svn commit -m "Moved feedparser to dormant." -N trunks-proper

3. Update the pom in the new repo location to point to correct web
location and update navigation and component list pages on j-c site to
reflect move.  Then republish both component and main commons site.
