Montone project server
We have a central netsync server (a copy of monotone serving the netsync protocol) with a number of contributors. This is where we store our versions of monotone, including releases and merges from other people and whatnot. This can be read by anyone, but those who have signed up as developers can add things to it. Setting yourself up to read from our server is pretty simple. Just follow these steps:
- Get or build a copy of the most recent monotone release; see downloads.
Clone the database and checkout the main branch.
$ # Command for monotone <=0.48 $ mtn --db=mtn.db clone mtn://monotone.ca/monotone "net.venge.monotone*" \ -b net.venge.monotone monotone $ # Command for monotone >=0.99 $ mtn --db=mtn.db clone "mtn://monotone.ca/monotone?net.venge.monotone*" \ -b net.venge.monotone monotone mtn: initializing new database '/home/levitte/tmp/mtn.db' mtn: doing anonymous pull; use -kKEYNAME if you need authentication mtn: connecting to mtn://monotone.ca/monotone mtn: first time connecting to server mtn://monotone.ca/monotone mtn: I'll assume it's really them, but you might want to double-check mtn: their key's fingerprint: 2c88403f0ed546df96ccec57ab3072aa73a05e71 mtn: warning: saving public key for email@example.com to database mtn: finding items to synchronize: mtn: bytes in | bytes out | certs in | revs in mtn: 41.2 k | 480 | 0 | 0 mtn: bytes in | bytes out | certs in | revs in mtn: 96.6 M | 528 | 56183/56183 | 13874/13874 mtn: successful exchange with mtn://monotone.ca/monotone
Note the key fingerprint in that output; you may wish to verify that it really is
This is your initial pull so it will take a bit of time, as it has to transfer a few megabytes of history to you. Subsequent pulls will be much faster.
You will now find yourself with a checked out working copy in the directory `monotone' (your workspace), which you can build, edit, merge, commit, etc. To build, follow the instructions in montone/INSTALL for your system.
In the future, you can pull new versions from our server and update your working copy from your database using these commands:
$ cd monotone $ mtn pull $ mtn update
To register as a developer, see the instructions under `Applying' on the Indefero server.
