The WebSVN is being disabled. Its being hit far too often by the RSS readers, and the implementation is horrible-- my host shut me down for CPU usage on the account. The SVN will be disabled for anyone without an account until I get home to resolve the issue. Anyone with an account can use that to login and gain access.
Erf... I hate writing up descriptions... and screenshot... download it, try it, delete it if you don't like it! If a short "this is what it does" paragraph isn't sufficient description I'm not gonna read a novel just to know if I should download something.... Besides, 3 min of playing with the mod is soooo much more helpful than a 3-page description, IMCO
Has anyone talked to the admins at WoWI? I'd assume that something could be worked out with hosting a SVN on their site, they seem faily supportive of projects like this (Hell, they have an entire section set aside for Ace.)
Honestly, the problem appears to be how we are using the SVN more than anything (Clad, correct me if I'm wrong). The same thing happened at openSVN, as the repo's trunk folder got bigger and bigger things got slower and slower. THe WebUI sufferen the most, but direct SVN access got slower too. Nowwith Clad's hosting direct access for commits and updates hasn't really suffered, but pulling down commit logs has (at least it's gotten really slow for me to pul a log on trunk directly). I dunno, I guess we've all become kinda dependant on the sVN as a release means instead of a dev tool :)
I'm gonna try to get better about releasing official crap to WoWI and Curse (and maybe ui.wow), but I'd like to find a nice lil program to generate changelogs off the SVN log, I don't like tort or subversion's output of the logs at all.
Ok.. first off-- thank you all for your concern.. but you have no idea whats going on here. There have been absolutely 0 issues with hosting the SVN at my site at the moment. It doesn't need to go anywhere, and WoWI doesn't have what would be necessary to host it at the moment.
The SVN has always been working. It hasn't slowed down much, and it hasn't had any issues. Everyone who keeps crying WOLF and ZOMG FIX THE SHIT need to get off my balls. I have been busy-- and you can all bite me (and I mean that.)
That being said, I've put up an svn web frontend that can handle what we're trying to do. WebSVN had some nice features, but is poorly coded (to say the least). SVN::Web uses perl native swig bindings, so its quite speedy and has no issues with the current repository. All pages (including the RSS feeds) are cached, so you should see things move very very very quickly (it should actually be faster than the native SVN =)
The RSS feed shows the last 11 revisions. The Changelog defaults to the last 20 revisions.
If you don't like it.. grab an SVN client. If you as a developer don't like relying on the SVN for your users when I can't guarantee 100% uptime (no one could) then feel free to do something else. I am more than happy to host the Ace SVN, I wouldn't have offered unless I wanted to. Its a great arrangement, and it works quite well (if anyone remembers how slow OpenSVN was even with an empty repository).
Yes, we don't have TRAC, but if we want that bloated buggy piece of shit I could install it-- it'll just take time.
Tekkub: Just saw your response, the SVN shouldn't get any more complex with the number of revisions-- thats one of the good things about the way its been written. SVK is even better for that. The problems we ran into before were basically with OpenSVN connection (which was SSL to begin with). While the per-file transfer rate isn't as high as it could be-- its what we have.. and its been pretty good. I think we'll make it just fine with this-- and if we need to, Kael can always shift hosting over to him (he just joined the same host.. it would be an easy transfer.
Wewt! Thanks claddo, I already got the Wiki template pointing to the new changelog path (like anyone but me uses that template anyway... So all my wiki pages are up to date for changelog links... I'll work on WoWI and curse links when I can (hell I might just link them to the wiki so I don't have to update them any time something changes....
BTW Clad, I like this web interface a lot more, I dunno I guess I just think the diff viewer is cleaner ^^
