Version Control, in software development of all kinds, has become a standard way for groups to collaborate on code.<br>As a rule of thumb, if it isn't worth putting under version control, it isn't worth sharing.<br>
These days, with excellent GUI version control clients, it becomes relatively easy to use, it is a matter of getting used to it.<br>Also, once the code of a piece of software reaches a certain level of complexity, it is hard to know what anything
<span style="font-style: italic;">is</span> unless it is under version control, i.e., in context.<br><br>Look what Oracle has to say about Drupal (from bert boerland's blog today):<br><br><i><i><span style="font-style: italic;">
"</span>Drupal is an example of an advanced content management framework. With
Drupal, it is possible to manage a variety of content and to do so in a
consistent and well-organized manner."<br><br></i></i>It is not a "script", it is a sophisticated piece of software.<br><i><i><span style="font-style: italic;"><br></span></i></i>So let's say you get a brilliant idea and you zip and it and post it and I download it and look at it, and put it into, say, my temp directory.
<br><br>A couple of weeks later, I don't know if it is for Drupal 4.7, Drupal 5, if it is an improvement of... what? I don't know in what context it exists. So I have to erase it, otherwise I might put it somewhere it could do some harm.
<br><br>I think it is a mark of maturity of Drupal as software and Drupal as a community.<br><br>Victor Kane<br><a href="http://awebfactory.com.ar">http://awebfactory.com.ar</a><br><i><i><span style="font-style: italic;">

I noticed this a few weeks back but you are no longer<br>allowed to upload .zip files to project issues. In the<br>past I've found this to be pretty useful for rough<br>code bits or non-standard things that don't really
<br>make sense in version control. An example would be if<br>you have some rough module code, image, or other file<br>type that you don't want to check into CVS.<br><br>This question probably is more for the infrastructure
<br>list but I am out of the loop on that group. Can<br>anyone elaborate/provide a link?<br><br>zirafa<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>____________________________________________________________________________________<br>It's here! Your new message!
