    unable to check in rss module

    jae Master

      i keep getting the following error while trying to add an "rss" directory name to the nukes tree so i can commit the source.

      cannot add to /cvsroot/jboss/CVSROOT/Emptydir

      any ideas?

      i was able to commit my changes to add the category name to the "bread crumb" links.

          as a stab in the dark, does this have anything to do w/ needing an entry in the "modules" file in CVSROOT, or does that only matter once the commit is made and checkouts need to be performed.

          either way, i'm waiting on a response :)

            ok what are you trying to do ? a directory like $nukes/rss/...
            in that case it is normal.

            could you describe what the rss stuff does exactly ? so far rss support is in the $nukes/nukes module.

              unless i'm mistaken, i thought the current rss support in nukes/nukes was just to allow the feeds to be exported. the rss module that i wrote allows feed info/links to be displayed in a block.

              if displaying the feed info already exists, i'll just consider the work i did as a learning experience - but if it does not, what i do i need to do in order to get this checked into cvs (maybe it needs a better name then just rss - i'm open to suggestions).

              i'd want to create a directory like this:

              nukes/rss

                it is ok to do a standalone module as long as the other core module don't depend on it.

                the module checkin cannot be made with adding directory under $nukes because of aliasing. the way you have to do it is first to import your module then to add an alias into the nukes project definition.

                I am going to write a small document about how to do it and make it available soon, so you can use it to make your module import

                  the module is standalone - it depends upon the core nukes code, which is "normal".

                  in any case, i'll just wait for your how-to document as i haven't used aliasing all the much in cvs as of yet.

                    Here is the document, if something is missing or unclear, just ask and I will update it.

                      you missed a link, but i found it. it's on the projet page in case anyone else is interested.

                      http://www.jboss.org/developers/projects/nukes/cvs

                      the explination is good, and the the instructions look pretty simple.

                      how much traffic does the commit list generate? it might be a good idea to recommend that ppl subscribe to get all those messages in a daily digest instead of as the occur.

                        it depends, now it is pretty calm. but before a release you can have a lot of commits from Scott Stark in general :-)

                        I have a normal subscription and I keep everything because it is usefull to see how the project evolve
