I develop on a mac, as I love the power of the shell and scripts.
When testing things on the test realm, I put together a script which copies the WTF from your everyday WoW install and makes changes to the contents to account for the realm and character name changes.
It can work when moving from one WoW install to another i.e. to the test realm, or within one wow install i.e. you've changed realmss.
I tried to check this in, however I'm not allowed to check in .sh files!
Please can someone elevate my SVN privileges or check the file in for me.
And the reason you can't add scripts and batch files to the svn is so that somebody with a brand new svn account can't go and add something malicious to all the popular addons, not because its possible to actually get the server to run them.
Correct on the first part, probably a misunderstanding on the second.
He's made a shell script that he runs locally to migrate settings from one wow client installation to another
(in his example live -> ptr install).
He just wants to upload it to svn to share with the masses.
If I understood the request correctly.
Not to run anything on the svn-host.
I did fully understand both statements. I meant, that the fact that a script .sh *could* be damaging, therefore it's most likely not allowed. Not unless each script is manually read through to make sure nothing bad can happen etc.
