Beauty is not tonights topic, neither a talking mirror - Subversion repository mirrors are. There are a couple of ways to mirroring your repository, one being SVN::Mirror. With my pronounced distaste for the make install dance, I was on the prowl for some solution with a more Windowsy touch to it.

Not too long into Google-Fu I stumbled across SVK, which has (a) a WIN32 setup, (b) loads of features which will be the topic of future blog posts:

  • Trans-backend mirror and sync for Subversion, CVS, Perforce (not on Windows currently if I gather correctly)
  • All operations can be performed while offline. Now that is way cool if you are working while travelling!

SVK uses Subversion FSFS for local storage, which means prior to installing SVK you need to install Subversion. With both packages on your machine, you can start exploring. All you need is a command prompt and Windows Explorer.

svk depot --init

This will initialize the // (default) depot. Create c:\svkroot, we will relocate the default repository there next.

svk depot --relocate // c:\svkroot

I am not really interested in hosting a read-only copy of a Subversion repository in my user profile. Thus for this relocation to proceed, you also need to copy the contents of C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\.svk\local (which is a bare bones SVN repository) into the c:\svkroot directory.

svk mirror svn://glumpatweri.emailgwiax.com/Fidalgo/trunk //SharpDevelop/trunk

Now the mirroring can begin - svk mirror is used to set up a link to an existing Subversion repository.

svk sync //SharpDevelop/trunk

Depending on the repository, grab a cup of coffee. This sync operation will take some time. Oh, and for keeping a mirrored repository in sync with the master, create a scheduled task with this command.

svnserve -d -r c:\svkroot

Testing, testing. Fire up svnserve and use TortoiseSVN to check out the read-only mirror:

Done. You have successfully mirrored a Subversion repository. Read-only. Working offline and other features of SVK will be covered later.

Cool. The WSUS Wiki just saved my day - I got the error SelfUpdate Tree is not working, which quite unsurprisingly cropped up thanks to a rather looked down setup of IIS...

Two more important downloads in addition to all the other B2 craze:

The # of VPC images starts skyrocketing (now that's a stupid word combination) on my dev machine...

If you want to deploy applications on Beta 2 for live internal usage or by third parties, you need to accept the Go-Live license.

As everyone is blogging about the obvious, I will stick to the more interesting bits (in my opinion, of course). For example, the updated Visual Studio 2005 Team Foundation Server Installation Guide.

From the "shameless self-promotion departement": we just pushed 1.1PR out the door. You can read the detailed announcement here. It has a bunch of cool new features, now we enter the stablization and polishing phase. Shouldn't take too long to follow it up with a Beta.

Just seen on NTBugtraq, quote from the Web site: SQLRecon performs both active and passive scans of your network in order to identify all of the SQL Server/MSDE installations in your enterprise. Due to the proliferation of personal firewalls, inconsistent network library configurations, and multiple-instance support, SQL Server installations are becoming increasingly difficult to discover, assess, and maintain.

SQLRecon is designed to remedy this problem by combining all known means of SQL Server/MSDE discovery into a single tool which can be used to ferret-out servers you never knew existed on your network so you can properly secure them.

Didn't yet have time to try SQLRecon myself, but sure will.

From the Windows Media home page, you can download the Windows Media Encoder 9 Series. This nice little encoder application isn't only limited to post-processing (very nice indeed in this area), but can also do live-broadcasting as well as screen recording.

Narrated screen recordings are sometimes simply more useful than written step-by-step instructions (even if "littered" with screenshots). That's why I recorded a quick (non-scripted, you will be able to tell) how to set up Windows Media Encoder for screen recording.

The post commit hook for Subversion now has reached a stage where I consider it feature complete. Newly added for this release:

  • log4net for logging important information (ie exceptions) necessary for debugging a hook that is supposed to run automatically. Note that it uses v1.2.9 of log4net, which is a Beta release. The log file name is post-commit.log (you can change this in post-commit.exe.config)
  • Nicely formatted commit mail. The change log line items are parsed, the A, U & D information is used to build Added, Modified & Deleted sections in the message.

Here is an example of the message format (from the #develop commit mailing list):

Author: mattward
Date: 2005-04-10 20:06:25 +0200 (So, 10 Apr 2005)
New Revision: 1840
Log Message:
Added basic .manifest schema.  Schema annotation displayed alongside
auto-completion list. Mixed namespaces and simple content types
now supported.  Added attribute value auto-completion.

Added:
trunk/SharpDevelop/data/schemas/manifest.xsd
....
trunk/SharpDevelop/src/AddIns/.../SimpleContentWithAttributeTestFixture.cs
Modified:
trunk/SharpDevelop/data/resources/StringResources.dk.resources
...
trunk/SharpDevelopResources/LanguageResources/LocalizeDb.mdb
Deleted:
trunk/SharpDevelop/src/AddIns/.../ActiveElementPathTestFixture.cs

 -- SvnPostCommitHook 1.2.0.50410 --

Installation Take all three files from \Hook and place them in your repository's hooks directory. Open post-commit.exe.config and modify the entries in the appSettings section to match your installation and needs.

Test it Run post-commit.exe once interactively from the command line to see if your installation is ok. Potential errors are only logged to post-commit.log, not to the Console. So be sure to check it!

Finally, the download:
