Recently, a friend of mine asked me which versioning system to use so that his migration from MS Visual SourceSafe would be the least painful. Subversion, ofcourse, would be the best bet right now, but I haven’t tried out GNU arch yet.
This provided the necessary impetus. As a result, I’m currently reading up on GNU arch, the free distributed versioning control system. I’ve used CVS a lot in the past, have given a brief try to subversion and will now try arch.
Keep watching this space for my comparison of the three versioning systems! :-)
Daniel Phillips recently posted a patch for an implementation of a distributed mmap API for Linux. I had it covered on Kerneltrap.
Playing with LJ layouts. The site is not at all coherent in terms of visibility; but that’s fine for now; once I settle with a theme, I’ll adjust the colors of the remaining layouts.
I shifted to LiveJournal ‘cos there wasn’t any Debian-packaged updating interface from emacs for Advogato. I still maintain my Advogato page, but updates there would be less frequent. Muli has written a tool that updates both, Advogato and LiveJournal, will try it over the weekend…
My first article to KernelTrap appeared on Saturday. I’ve recently joined the Kerneltrap moderation team, there are many more to come ;-)
First post: Trying with emacs and ljupdate.
