All: I was just filling out PR pkg/43960 to add an rc.d/ example to pkgsrc/devel/cvsup/ I wanted to ask: Is anyone interested in developing a formal or informal set of cvsup daemon supfiles and a matching pkgsrc package? Basically matching FreeBSD's ports/net/cvsup-mirror/ The port simply creates @PREFIX@/cvsup/prefixes with @PREFIX@/cvsup/prefixes/distrib.self as a symlink to "../" allowing @PREFIX@/cvsup/sup/*, the daemon's config, to be self-populated into place on all mirrors. It also puts a client supfile in place at PREFIX@/cvsup/supfile along with a few other bits. The supfile has line: distrib release=self prefix=prefixes/distrib.self This lets them populate identical, granular cvsup collections to all mirrors, official and unofficial: $ du -hs /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/* 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/cvs-all 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/cvsroot-all 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/cvsroot-common 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/cvsroot-doc 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/cvsroot-ports 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/cvsroot-projects 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/cvsroot-src 8.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/distrib 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/doc-all 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/gnats 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/mail-archive 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/ports-accessibility 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/ports-all 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/ports-arabic 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/ports-archivers 6.0K /usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/ports-astro [...] The tricky parts for pkgsrc are: 1) The designated CVSUP Master defines the absolute path for $keywordprefix value in each collection's supfile config: For example, within the cvsup "self distrib" on cvsup.jp.netbsd.org: cvs list=list.cvs prefix=prefixes/NetBSD.cvs \ keywordprefix=/home/cvsroot super=netbsd NOTE: This path can really be arbitrary, but each mirror has to symlink it to the proper local path (to CVSRoot) 2) @PREFIX@/cvsup/prefixes/NetBSD.cvs also has to be a symlink to the proper local path (to CVSRoot) I know this seems a bit convoluted, but it works well. Also, I admit this initiative would be about 10 years too late, but I'm preceding with the understanding that CVS will be around for a while and bandwidth isn't getting much cheaper.
