Talk:VCS package guidelines
Q: Any reason for using 'svn co' instead of 'svn export'? export is way faster for these situations and it doesn't create all the .svn files.
What's the reason for using 'cp -r $_svnmod $_svnmod-build' instead of using 'svn export $_svnmod $_svnmod-build'?--BertiBoeller 19:21, 15 March 2009 (EDT)
-- no reason afaik. Please send a patch against /usr/share/pacman/PKGBUILD-svn.proto from abs package to the bug tracker. --shining 07:59, 4 October 2009 (EDT)
Please submit the Mercurial proto to flyspray so that it can be added to abs package. --shining 17:37, 18 December 2009 (EST)
Q: Could we consider a guideline to use firewall-friendly protocols when possible (e.g. https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib.git instead of git://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib.git)? --Mitch feaster 14:34, 15 November 2011 (EST)
