Ok, I've made added some preliminary support for mouse selections. Now I need to learn how to share this release.
Gee, learning this Sourceforge can zap a lot of energy in itself. I don't want to get too distracted by it though, just learn the bare minimum for now, and return focus on how to use the repo to push in new changes.
So time for me to move my focus back onto the code itself. Will aim to learn what it takes to get mouse-selection of text working as a starting effort and will commit/push my changes once I get it working ;)... read more
I'm imagining that Sourceforge has facilities to auto-email you if someone makes code updates, discussion posts or generates a change request tickets.
These page offer some options, I will look into...
Wait a sec, the info there wasn't too helpful, I'm suspecting some of these facilities are out of date? Or perhaps only work for older sourceforge projects?... read more
Ok, inside sourceforge menu-systems, I'm looking at "Admin >> User Permissions". Since I don't know any better, I'm permitting the 'Anonymous' group to have create & update permissions, hopefully that means anyone can make changes. Hopefully that's a good thing :)
I'd better add Björg as an administrator for this project too, will chase it up with him.
Well, it's a 1st attempt at a sourceforge project for me, very early in the learning curve, but here's some of my initial thought-process.
I decided to use Mercurial for version-control, as it's a distributed vcs, each coder can do their own local commits and not affect others. When they're ready to share their results, they can push it in. It's also a bit more windows-friendly (eg, TortoiseHg client). I thought about Git vcs initially, but it still seems more linux-oriented, although I know it works in Windows too by installing cygwin/bash. But I'm worried that'll seem like extra headaches for windows developers, so Mercurial it is.... read more
