Hacking SER with Git

SER Git Repository

The Git repository of SER is available through HTTP, SSH, and proprietary Git protocol. The HTTP and Git access methods only provide read-only access to the repository, that means you would be able to check out your own copy of the repository, but you will not be able to push your changes back.

To clone the repository using HTTP do:

git clone http://git.sip-router.org/ser

To clone the repository using Git protocol do:

git clone git://git.sip-router.org/ser

If you have write access to the repository and access to the git host then you can checkout the repository using ssh:

git clone ssh://username@git.sip-router.org/ser

where username is your username on host git.sip-router.org

You can also browse the repository through the gitweb WWW interface at http://git.sip-router.org

Repository Layout

CVS Compatibility

The repository is also available through cvs for those who do not want or cannot use git. A recent version of cvs client is needed to access the repository. You need to have the following two environment variable set if you want to access the repository anonymously through the pserver method:

export CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sip-router.org/ser
export CVS_SERVER=git-cvsserver

To checkout the source tree you need to specify the name of the head (a.k.a branch) instead of the cvs module!. You can see what branches are available in the repository in gitweb at http://git.sip-router.org]] (look for heads)

The most important head names are:

  • master - This is the main development/unstable branch (HEAD in cvs terminology)
  • cvs-head - This is the branch that tracks commits in the cvs repository at berlios, no changes through git are made here
  • rel_2_0_0 - This the branch containing stable 2.0.0 release.

So if you want to checkout the latest development version then do:

cvs co master

CVS write access is only available through ssh:

export CVSROOT=:ext:username@cvs.sip-router.org/ser
export CVS_SERVER=git-cvsserver

cvs co master

Note that the layout of the repository is slightly different than it used to be on berlios, see section Repository Layout. The cvs compatibility layer does not support tagging and branching, so you would need to use git for that.
