Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 128356
subversion should include psvn.el
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:46 EST
Description of problem:
The subversion source includes a very useful elisp package
"contrib/client-side/psvn/psvn.el" which I think
it would be nice to include in our subversion package.
It could at least be included in the doc dir,
so that people who want to use can pull it over into their
elisp dirs. Of course it would be nicer to add a -emacs and
perhaps even a -xemacs subpackage to host it in, so that it
just worked out of the box.
Where do I put the scripts for xemacs? What's the recommended
solution; an -emacs subpackage or not? Or just own the common
directories twice and be damned?
is there a guide to use for packageres e.g. to how to get these
byte-compiled at build time?
Well in this case I wouldn't worry about bytecompiling too much
and I would bother making -emacs/-xemacs subpackages either for this.
I think the locations you give are fine.
You may want to read https://bugzilla.fedora.us/show_bug.cgi?id=1880
where the same thing was down for xcscope.el in cscope...
It explains how you can use triggers to avoid dependencies on
emacs and xemacs, but you may feel it is too much engineering?
OK, thanks. psvn.el is in both the above paths in 1.0.6-3; can you
confirm whether this works?
I used the psvn.el from the author's web site rather than the one in
the tarball, since the latter seemed to be a little out of date w.r.t
Thanks a lot. :-)
At some point it will probably be nice to add an init file
so that psvn gets autoloaded for say svn-status. But I can
file another report about that when I get tired of loading
it by hand. :)
